Norton security and VNC - no help yet

I have NIS 2004 running on both my laptop and my desktop computer. I have VNC v4 on the laptop talking to VNC 3.3.8 on the desktop (or 3.3.7 I'm not at home to check right now). I am able to VNC the desktop with no problem. I've tried through a router, and local connection, both have been successful. I did not have to make any adjustments to get it working other than allowing the connection and setting up the router forwarding. It just works. I have not tried to VNC the laptop from the desktop yet, but one day!
This doesn't help you fix the problem, but at least you know it does work.
I can send you my settings when I have a chance to review them at home. New baby's don't leave a lot of time for anything else!!

I have searched the archives for the following problem:
when NIS is enabled, I can't get out with the viewer, period. I have already
configured NIS program control to allow vnc viewer to access the internet. I
have allowed monitoring of the necessary ports. No go. It just won't work
with NIS enabled.
Searching the archives didn't reveal any solutions, just the same problem over
and over again, with suggestions to just 'get rid of norton'. Not an option
here - sorry.
Now, does anyone simply know if vnc viewer will work with norton, or not?
Please do not tell me to doublecheck my work, this has been consuming me for a
while now and I am sure of the configuration of norton. There is no problem
connecting to the server machine with NIS enabled on that (host) machine, just
the viewer trying to get in from the remote machine needs NIS disabled. This
is just maddening.
