My problem in connecting to the XP workstation at 192.168.1.100 on my intranet, still exists.
I added another XP workstation (this one XP home) and the viewer or server works fine on that.
Neither vncview (192.168.1.100:5900) nor telnet 192.168.1.100 5900 will connect (error 10060) to the problem XP
machine whether the firewall is active (with exceptions for winvnc4 and 5900 TCP) or not.
>From within the problem machine vncview and telnet both connect. So something is blocking access to port 5900 from
outside this machine, but I have no idea what.
I also tried moving the problem machine to a static address, but it made no difference.
Thanks for any suggestions,

I don't do Windows!
