Dear Phillip, Thank you for your information.
Sorry if you didn't get my post clear. Let me tell you. I went to www.portforward.com, you gave me. That is what I needed information. I went to Router List, unfortunately, I cannot seem to find XFINITY but, I do see Comcast routers, but they seem not to match me, I think. I haven't get my magnifying glass to read the model number yet. I came home from my friend's home and got busy to do business first. But, I visited Port Forward website. The really nice thing is to use FPConfigure. Unfortunately, it is not free, I must purchase it for $29.95 a copy. It is not helpful, I have to disagree with you. I tried to look for software list, but, it is not easy for me. I am a blind user. Not easy for me, either. Did you use FPConfigure from there, if not, what should I do step-by-step how I can follow better? By the way, I logged onto http://10.0.0.1 which is my router's address. I got the logo that says 'XFINITY Login' and I entered my router username & password then, Log in. I can see "Port Forwarding" so, I need to find out how I can do with VNC since I think that www.portforward.com does not list this router. I also tried Google to find out, unfortunately, no luck, either! Sigh. Any suggestion?

If you're trying to access a machine on that network from elsewhere, you'll need to set up port forwarding. www.portforward.com is a big help. I assume everything on the local network picks up an IP address from the router, so they should all be on the same subnet. The 5800 port is for the Java viewer, so you'd type http://<ip address>::5800 in a browser's address bar (not a search box). For the VNC client the port to forward is 5900, with 5500 if you want to make a reverse connection out to a 'listening' client. Watch out for firewalls!

I am a new user, but actually, I was an old subscriber back in 2000's. Anyway, I got a new XFINITY modem, it was messed up including my Videophone [VP] by Sorenson Communications. Yesterday, my tech guy came. He fixed the wires. It is much better also, he reconfigured my VP for XFINITY modem. It works great for now. Unfortunately, my VNC cannot be connected from my laptop's end. I've tried ip-address:5800 and I got Connection Timed out. I checked the settings, I got the router so, I don't understand the settings yet. I am running on: Windows XP x86 Comcast high-speed internet using XFINITY modem VNC 4.1.2 Server/Viewer My router's IP address starts with 10.0.0.x... I think so. When I got into router, it says XFINITY - Login so, I did logged on. I got the main screen: HOME > At A Glance Home Networking Network Connection It listed the hardware stuff. It is very basic. Can someone tell me how do I set my VNC to go through to the internet? Let me know. Thank you very much!
