I wasn't speaking about you in particular, just pointing out that many users
who post here would benefit from a basic understanding of port forwarding
and the difference between public and private IP networks. That's it.
As for your particular problem, I've never run into it. Having said that,
it doesn't mean that you're not having that problem. In my experience, I
just don't know how it could possibily be anything to do with VNC since the
viewer wouldn't know the difference between wired or wireless!! As you are
well aware, I'm sure, it's merely pinging a server at a particular IP.
Glad you sorted it out.

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 configurations 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
