Thanks for a great remote control software.
I use it Daily for my own use and for supporting my clients;
and supporting my family members

I can do torrents over wireless [multi GigaBytes]
I _know_ how to setup freaking forward rules on routers
and most everything else with wireless.
I cannot do realvnc wireless serving regardless of the router and even
direct connections
I _have tried_ most everything _and_ in _many_Many-MANY- different
I _KNOW_ that with my hardware that vncserver WON'T answer with wireless.

I can do viewer; wired and wireless.

I don't give a shit ;  as  I found a freaking work around

I was at my father's and _could_not_ get the two wireless laptops
talking to each other when both were using wireless.
As soon as I made _either_ one the wired server
BOOOM it freaking worked; SO Great; No Problem
I don't care; I know these limitations with these hardware
and this software. piece of cake.

Thanks for all your assistance
