Have you set a password? What happens if you hover the mouse over the icon
in the system tray on the server? If it's listening, it should briefly say
something like "VNC Server (Service):xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" if you have it loaded
as a service. By default, if you didn't uncheck anything, it should be
installed as a service. Also, what operating systems are you running? If you
have XP SP2, you probably have a firewall blocking VNC, and should either
temporarily disable the firewall or create an exception for the VNC Server
(typically c:\program files\RealVNC\VNC4\winvnc4.exe)

I am a total novice here, both in terms of VNC and in terms of networking.
understand the (very) basics needed to set up networks but that is about it.
Anyway, I cannot get VNC to work. I have the VNC server running on my
and am trying to connect to it using VNC viewer on my laptop, but am getting
the message "unable to connect to host: connection refused (10061)".
I have not done anything to any to the settings on VNC sever, so they are
default when installed, and having browsed the list archive, I just get lost
in all the technical jargen.
Can anyone suggest any possible sollutions?
