TightVNC assigning incorrect keystrokes

The goal was to remote desktop to my debian box from my windows machine, I went down the path of TightVNC.

Installed and ran it.. thought I was all clear.. however the keyboard keystrokes are all jumbled, and seem to be all over the shop. (ie: when i press 'p' it actually comes out as 'X' etc

Happens for all keystrokes.

Had a quick look around but haven't found any information on it.

Any ideas appreciated.
