I have seen RealVNC questions, but haven't found the 'right' answer for me.
I am trying to train someone and need to get into her machine. We are running through a company VPN.
I can connect to her machine, (after Password Authentication).  On her side (she can see me moving the mouse).  All I see is a black screen and a small box for the mouse.
On her machine we are running RealVNC as a Service, as well as on my Machine.  

Does anyone have knowledge of a fix for this, or what the real problem is?

I need to add that this is through a VPN Tunnel.  RealVNC is what I was given to use, but we do not have the answer to this.  Our local network is on the form of 10.0.0.###.  Mine is Static in the office, but non-static out of the office.  The Windows machine I am attempting to view is out of the office, but connect through the VPN tunnel.

We also need to be able to both have 'control' and views of the screen.

yes, along with every other capability you could possible imagine, remote regsitry, service control, file transfer etc, you can even lock the remote keyboard and mouse so no interference!

I have to check with my administrator to see if I can try it.  Reading the features, I didn't really see if it allows myself and the user on the other end to share....
