Joined Oct 20, Messages 1, So I do not see how you would expect the port-forward configuration you've entered to work - as you have told the router to port-forward to two different LAN IP addresses. I can't say if it is the case for all routers, but certainly any I have used do not offer the option to port-forward the same port to two different LAN IP address - how does the router decide which it should sent the request to?
Thanks for the reply coulterp. I've reconfigured port forwarding on for PC 1 and for PC 2 and made the necessary changes on the VNC server settings as well. I'll try and remote in from office tomorrow and see if it works. And port forwarding was only configured for PC 1 on But I couldn't connect from office using PC1. So I configured PC 2 as well to see if it will work on a different machine.
But it didn't. Will reply again once I'm in the office. It may well be that your office networks are blocking the use of VNC. Works fine, if a litlle slow. Hi Coulterp, I've just tried again from my office but still getting that "failed to connect to server" message. I'm actually using a direct internet connection at my office and it has worked before. I've setup tightvnc on a desktop at the remote office location and can vnc into that pc just fine.
I was actually going to setup ssh via cygwin once I get tightvnc going. But gotta get tightvnc going first. Would appreciate any comment. Double checked the following: 1. I forgot to shut down zone alarm when I went to work today. By the way, the free version of zone alarm doesn't let you configure ports, does it? Sorry for the late response. Was away at a remote location for a couple of days. Anyway, no luck even with zone alarm turned off. Checked all the settings and everything seems to be in order.
Guess I'll just start from scratch again. Thanks for the help coulterp. As Seen On. Welcome to Tech Support Guy! Latest posts. HP wireless printing 1 Viewer Latest: valis 10 minutes ago.
