1PC & 1Laptop

Postby offagain » Wed Feb 09, 2011 2:53 pm

Hello, I have remoter set up just fine on my PC running Windows 7 which is also connected directly to the router. I used the exact same instructions to set up Remoter on my Windows 7 laptop connected to the internet via WiFi,but it keeps telling me "Disconnected,Error connecting to server". Is there something I am doing wrong?

I don't know. It could be your laptop's firewall preventing the VNC server from connecting.
Try opening a console (cmd in windows, terminal in Mac) and telnetting over to the laptop at port 5900, if you get a response, then the computer is accessible, if not, then either the VNC server is not running, or the firewall is blocking it.

telnet 5900
(where is the laptop IP address)
