    Default PLease help re: VNC
    Evening all.

    Looking for a bit of help on the VNC app.

    I have downloaded tightVNC for vista windows and lightVNC for iphone 3g.

    on pc:

    have allowed tight vnc by the firewall and also went to the add port bit and allowed the port light vnc uses (5900 i think it was)

    gave the vnc a password.

    on iphone:

    downloaded app
    set up the 192.xxx.x.x (does this seem a bit short?)
    gave it same password

    restarted pc


    now when i open the vnc on iphone (using 3g) and connect, i get

    VNC negotiating

    then "host has closed connection"

    then thats it

    any clues on what im doing wrong would be much appreciated,

    thanks

    you didnt mention it, but is tight vnc open on vista, cuz that has to be open for this to work, and i believe you need to be on wifi on the iphone. while ive gotten it to work over edge, test using first to configure the settings
    edit: forgot to mention that I was using vnsea and touchpadpro

    Hi
    I had the same problem. I realised I had the "VNC Server Port" set to 5800 when it should be 5900.
    Once I changed this, i connected straight away.

    hth

    I am connecting to a windows XP machine, interestingly the viewer on my iphone works faster than the viewer i have on a Vista machine!!!

    the IP address looks wrong. go do a search for your IP address

    you can also use the computer name if you dont know the ip address.
    Or go to start/windows button/ctrl+esc, type "run" followed by enter
    then in the "run" window type "cmd" followed by enter
    then tpye "ipconfig /all" followed by enter
    and look for either "host name" and use whatever it says or the
    IP address

    thanks guys, i left it for about 15 mins then re-entered the ip again and it worked straight away. bizarre

    just another quickie.

    I was planning on using the webcam as a sort of cheap cctv for the home that i could check on using the iphone. unfortunately the video doesnt stream on the iphone and is only a snapshot of what the camera can see. i can go to refresh and it refresh's that way but again its another still.

    I expect this is normal, but anyone got it streaming yet

    thanks again for helping the noob
