I just got RealVNC for XP, and ran the VNC Server. And I tried connecting to my computer using VNC Viewer from another computer running XP, I tried putting in "myip:5800" and "hostname:5800", but both resulted in a "cannot connect" message. I tried it on several other computers with XP and it's the same problem. I even tried connecting it using my browser by typing in "http://ipaddress:5800
" but that didnt work either.
I disabled my firewall. (Strangely, my windows XP firewall option is "greyed-out" and I can't enable it).
What am I doing wrong? By the way, if I can't just put in the numerical ip address, how do I find my exact host name to put into the VNC viewer?
