There seem to be a lot of problems with VPN. A bit more info would really
help us diagnose your problem and get you up and running. First, what do you
mean by "I can't get it working"? Do you get a password prompt, followed by
an all-black screen and then a disconnect? If so, that's a fairly common
problem, and will require a bit of technical "know-how" to fix. Do you just
not even get a password prompt? What operating systems are we talking about
here? Is your workstation at the office Windows XP, and do you have the

primarily a user-to-user support, even though James Weatherall from RealVNC

Subject: VPN and VNC Again
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?
