Using UltraVNC to connect to a wireless machine in a local network

We have a cafeteria computer with a static IP address set for the wireless adapter. It has a wireless NIC card and is connecting wirelessly to a WAP54G. I am unable to use my UltraVNC viewer to connect to the machine. Are there ports I need to open in the AP? I have assigned the computer a 10.X.X.X and the WAP is setup as an access point and doesn't hand out private IPs. I can use remote dekstop to connect to the machine and I have verified VNC server settings on the PC.

this is most likely a firewall issue on the machine stopping the VNC connection.

for a test try disabling any firewall installed on the machine ( windows firewall / Anti-virus ) and see whether you are successful.


if this doesn't work, you might want to check if the VNC service is running with netstat

As the PC is with the network. there should not be any issues with ports.  You might want to add port 5900 to the firewall on the PC or disable the firewall.  I normaly disable it because it's behind my company firewall.
