I4m not sure if the "host unreachable" error is due to this, but I think
your proxy is not configured to enable outgoing connections on "non
standard" ports as 5900,5800.
By default, proxys get installed with support for outgoing connections on
443,80,563 ports and all other ports must be configured by hand, due to
I checked this with MS ProxyServer2 some time ago, and I suppose ISA server
will be the same. The option to enable other ports was hidden and I don't
remember exactly...so you can run your VNCServer on 80 or 443 port so you
don4t have to search for it.
Hope this helps.
