    Trying to VNC from my networked computer to another on a network. I've tried putting in the main IP for that network but obviously it won't connect nor will putting in the local IP. Does anyone have any clues to a way I can access?

    Thanks in advance,

    IHP.

    Just some clarification. Are these computers on the same physical network or are they on different networks and you need to use the internet to get to the other one.

    Thanks for the prompt reply! Different networks, both access to TCP/IP.

    First, how about a little more information about the configurarion. How are these computers linked? "Access to TCP/IP" doesn't mean anything to me, almost every computer has access to TCP/IP if it's on any kind of network. The real question is do the systems have access to each other.

    Can you PING the computer you're trying to connect to from the other system? If not, you will probably not be able to get VNC working until you address that issue.
