Authentification Failed suggests you are using the wrong user name or password.

Make sure numlock and capslock are not on as that will screw up the password. Double check by typing the password into the username box so you can read it then cut and paste into the password box.

Is there any possibility that you have more than one device on your network with IP address 192.168.0.5? You might try changing the PC's IP address to see if that makes a difference.

I can't think of any reason it wouldn't work if the Windows firewall is disabled (also disable the Norton firewall if you are using Norton) other than a settings problem on the Windows computer or an incorrect username or password.

Wow .
I just resolved it.

Solution :

>>>Authentication failed<<
I was using window xp username /password ,Instead of vnc password.

To access widowxp through Apple Remote Desktop 3.2
you need to install VNC program on window systems.

I use:
http://www.tightvnc.com/

when you try to connect window box . you need to use VNC server  password.
note: never use window username/password

Hope this help for someone in future.

Strung
Thanks for your help. Much appreciate.

If you have XP Pro, you should be able to access it using the Windows RCP Client for Mac without using VNC provided you have Remote Desktop turn on on the PC . If you have XP Home, you need VNC.

Apple Remote desktop is a variant of VNC which is why you needed a VNC server on the PC.

If you have XP Pro, suggest you turn on RDC on the PC and use this:
