    Is a firewall blocking the connection?

    Have you tried a program like TightVNC. I use it all the time at work, no problems at all.

    For the VNC problem it looks like a problem with GCC. Possible upgrade??? Or XVNC could be a broken file?? Probably consider finding another version.


    For the Remote Desktop KDE 3.2:

    Is there a screensaver running on the other machine??
