Hello, may I assume this is the correct response for my problem too?
The router is a D-Link DSL-G604T with an upgraded firmware.

So, should I expect it will run ok from other places?
Thanks in advance.

Asunto: Web test is OK but connection is refused.
I have installed a just downloaded free VNC at home and I have
successfully accessed the server from a second PC in my home LAN (using
192.168.1.2 as target). All the OSs are Win2K.
Then, I have opened the required ports of my ADSL router for the static
The test at http://www.realvnc.com/cgi-bin/nettest.cgi returns me the
following successful response:
> The IP address requesting this web page is 62.14.xxx.yyy
> Connecting to port 5900 ... succeeded.
> Waiting for server to send version string...
> Found a server supporting protocol version 3.8.
However, if I try to access the server from the very same second PC
using now 62.14.xxx.yyy, I obtain a "unable to connect to host:
Connection refused (10061)". Pinging 62.14.xxx.yyy is ok.
I have done all the tests with no software firewall active.
I'd appreciate any advice.
