Just was troubleshooting a VNC connection for an hour and it boiled
down to this:
Norton Anti virus 2005 has an option called Internet worm protection
that it installs and enables by default. This functions as a software
firewall on your computer and will prevent VNC from working when it is
first installed as it blocks incoming traffic.
If you already use a BETTER firewall (e.g zone alarm, agentium,
pc-cillin) then just turn this off
here's a link on how to add exceptions (could this lik be any longer)
Just wanted to let the list know about this. This was a new "feature"
in 2005. as if XP firewall doesn't cause me enough headaches.
