Forgive if the answer to this question is in past lists. I have been searching and can't seem to find it.
I am using Cisco's VPN Client 4.0.1 to access the lan at work. I can remote desktop into the servers that I need to get to once I have the VPN connection. My problem is I installed RealVNC server on my work pc (Windows 2000) to try to access it from home using the VNCViewer and I can't get it working.
While I am tunneled in to the LAN I can ping my work pc, but I get a connection timed out if I enter that same IP into the Viewer. At work, to test I tried to connect to my work pc from my work pc (the VNC server). I can connect using both the Java Viewer and the VNC Viewer so I assume the VNC server is configured correctly.
From home thru the VPN to connect to any shared drives I always have to log in with my network password. I am wondering if this has something to do with it. Reading the lists, someone had mentioned after you make a connection this way or in Outlook you should be able to use the VNC Viewer but I still can't.
Any advice for a non-techy?
