I use VNC on an internal network running windows 2000.  I can log onto about 30 other machines, but when I connect to this specific one after about 5 seconds it just hangs and  I get disconnected.  I get the error "read: Connection reset by peer (10054)"  This machine that I try to connect to works fine as far as internet access and downloading files so I don't think the NIC is the problem.  The NIC is a d-link DGE 530T Gigabit Ethernet Adapter.

for future reference mine said "Rate-Limit mouse move events."   This seems to have fixed the problem.  Thanks.
