vb.net VNC

I am setting up a client server thing.
I wrote a vb.net service and am running it on the client.
On the server (XP Pro)  running the vnc viewer.
On the client (XP Home) I have winvnc.exe.
I've setup my XP Pro router.
From the client if I go to a command line and type in:
winvnc -connect myserverip -run
I connect just fine... a reverse connection if you will...
If I use process.start from the vb.net service and send it
process.start ("winvnc", "-connect myserverip -run")
I connect just long enough for the vnc viewer to display "The connection closed unexpectedly"

Any thoughts?

Who is the service running as? Also check to see if the service is allowed to interact with desktop. You should be able to see this in the services.msc panel.
