I have VNC v4 running on a server that is on the back side of a Linksys.
Yes, it has forwarding on.
I have VNC v4 installed at work, and at home. From work, I put in the
IP and the authentication screen opens, I put in the password and the
screen opens, but remains black. Hmm, must be something on the server I
I go home and point the same version VNC to it, and voila, it opens and
I see the white logon screen (Win2K Server).
So, I figure it is something with screen turned off, or something like that.
So, I fixed home setup so I can reach home from work I can reach home
from work (all is well) I try to reach the server in question from the
VNC session at home and all works. I try it from the VNC session at
work, and black screen, no activity.
VNC is getting to my home computer from work, letting me start a session
to the server and all works.
What should I be looking for to fix the VNC session from work to the server?
