Heya. On the VNC Server machine, try running the scan
at "http://www.gotomyvnc.com". If it can connect, then any
normal VNC Viewer will be able to connect.
PS: Many newer DSL models have a "built in" router nowadays,
so you may have one and not know it. If the IP address
shown when you mouse-over the VNC Service icon in the PC's
service tray is different than the IP address shown in the
GoToMyVNC scan....then there's a router involved. :)
