I think the thing that bothers me the most is that it worked for nearly two
months and THEN just died. I'm wondering if there wasn't one of the latest
updates from Microsoft that killed it. No software other than updates has
been added or installed in that time - this machine is pretty much dedicated
to getting info from home at my office.
Before, I could make a connection inside the home network using the "local"
IP and also the homedns.org url. Now, I can make only the "local"
connection - that still works. I even tried from the machine itslef - pretty
wild when you connect to yourself - stacks up browser windows like crazy -
like aiming a video camera at a mirror.

What router do you have at home? Any sort of firewall software? Have your
better half look in the system tray at the VNC icon. Hold the mouse cursor
over it and make sure it does NOT say "not accepting connections."
