I have been trying VNC4.1 (free version) on 3 computers, all on the local side of my router:
1) OS/2 workstation 192.168.1.2
2) XP workstation 192.168.1.100
3) XP Laptop 192.168.1.102
Machines 1 and 2 are hard wired to the router and the laptop is connected on the local wireless. I can ping to any
machine from any other machine.
I have tried the following combinations
Server Viewer Success
on 1 on 2 yes
on 3 on 2 yes
on 3 on 1 yes
on 2 on 1 no - failue to connect
on 2 on 3 no - failue to connect
For both XP machines - I have made a Windows Firewall exception for winVNC4 and made sure that Fast Switching
and Remote Desktop are off. As far as I can tell I have the same settings for VNC options, Internet Options and
Windows Firewall in both XP machines and both machines have the latest Microsoft updates.
Perhaps there is a bad setting on the XP workstation.
Thanks for any suggestions
This OS/2 system uptime is 0 days 04:12 hours.
I don't do Windows!
