Note that the free version of RealVNC server doesn't work with Vista or W7 - you'd need the "Personal" edition, which isn't free. UVNC is a free alternative, if you can pick your way through the misleading "download" adverts and find the right link. Otherwise, check the Connection tab allows connections from the right subnet (allowing 192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0 is a safe bet) and check your firewall allows the port through. If you have some baroque "Security Suite" you'll need to fathom out the procedure for opening ports.

I have the VNC Viewer installed on it. I have a Compaq laptop running Windows XP on which I have the VNC Server installed. I am able to connect from the HP to the laptop without a problem. I purchased a Toshiba laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium. I installed VNC Server on it. Every time I try to connect from the desktop to the Toshiba I get a "connection was reset by peer" error. I checked that the configuration on the Toshiba matches the one on the Compaq. I checked to see that port 5900 on the Toshiba is not in use by another service. Can anyone help me?
