Nope. Verified this awhile back, actually, but I forgot to include
that in the full_description below. And if this was happening, the
event log on BOX_1 wouldn't be showing connections, which it is.

Just confirming: so you're definitely behind a router that is using
NAT when you're at work?
This would seem to rule out EVERYTHING, so I can only conclude that
there's some behavior of vNC that isn't being reported. Is there a way
to get a fully-detailed debugging log from the client and/or server
side of vNC? If I could tell _exactly_ where it was falling on the
floor, I could probably figure it out; but the sparse entries in the
Event Log don't really give enough information. =/

I've messed around with changing the local ports, but it doesn't
change anything; same results whether I connect to "localhost", or
whether I forward 9876 to 5900 and connect to localhost::9876.
