OK, so it works using a browser to port 5801. But using the windows version of tightVNC or VNCviewer (free).

With tightVNC I get a window that tells me protocol version negotiated, but it never progresses beyond that. VNCviewer tells me nothing. Windows task manager shows me they are running.

If, at the oes server I do rcxvdm (IIRC) restart, each program will tell me the server was disconnected.

Works the same on several PC's XP or 2k.

I am doing something very wrong. or am I?
