Make sure the router has port 5900 open and redirected to your XP box at the
very least. If you don't know how to do it, check your documentation. Most
routers will allow outbound connections just fine and will not block *any*

Subject: vnc has problems with router?
Sorry, on my initial post I gave no mention of vnc in the title.
I have been trying to setup the vnc server on windows XP. I have the ip
address, but for some reason connections cannot be made to the server. I am
using a labtop to try and figure out what is wrong. So far, I think the
problem may have to do with the router because when the labtop is connected
to the router I can connect to the server and everything runs fine, but if I
try to connect over the internet, thus comming from outside the router,
nothing works. However, the labtop is also a server and I have been able to
connect from the windows XP to the labtop over the internet. I have
disabled my firewalls on the XP, but it seems to have no effect. I am using
a linksys router, but I don't see why it would only allow connections in one
direction. Any help would be appreciated.
