are you saying that there may be a firewall at work not letting the VNC traffic out onto the Internet? I know http traffic goes through a proxy server but not sure about ftp traffic. are you thinking that i'm not getting outside of my corporate network? is there any easy way to troubleshoot this from the desktop? maybe like a tracert for VNC? is there any way to know if the VNC traffic is getting outside of the corporate network to the Internet?
