I'm not sure if you guys could help because I am using tightvnc on linux mandrake 10.1. Anyway the problem is that when I turned on the firewall and opened the ports vnc server uses, namely 5900 and 5800, I couldn't connect. Keep in mind I was able to connect before. So, then I turned off the firewall, but now it still doesn't work. I'm thinking that tightvnc changed the port number that it use when it saw the firewall was on and didn't change back when I turned it off or that this is a major bug. I'm not sure which. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
