First a work around.....
you are thinking about using the javaviewer to connect from outside
(at some point) from a machine where you might not be able to install
the viewer? this isn't an issue that often as you dont even really
need to "install" it. I keep a copy of the windows client on my usb
keychain and i can almost always run it from there. but i digress....
as long as one of the java clients works you can connect to
192.168.1.2:5802 wait for the client to load and then type in the box
the java client basically is like a copy of the vncviewer that runs
inside your browser window.
in fact you could load the java client from *anyone's* vnc server and
then use the client to control your machine.
Just to clarify something, when you conect to http://192.168.1.3:5803.
what do you see?
do you see an applet symbol? Does the java client load in the
browser but then not work.
i dont remember if this was in an earlier post or not. but this may
help to pinpoint the issue.
Gut reaction (which is prolly wrong, BTW) is that xp home may be
somehow not allowing web traffic to be served. for some reasons I
remember that there are IIS issues with home possiblly simmilar to
