I think your setup is the server on 1.6 and sc on any other computer on the LAN. If that's not what you want then it's wrong.

not sure what you mean... the XP is the client, 1.6 has the viewer. So I support on 1.6.

Ok. Here is a high level overview of vnc an sc.
1. Install the server on all the computers in your office. Use the viewer from you computer to connect to them
2. Run the viewer listen mode on your computer. Then have anyone in the office run sc to do a reverse connection. This saves you from installing the server everywhere but you Have to have the user run sc.

So I think what you are doing is running viewer instead of viewer listen an also running sc before running viewer listen. Thata why it doesn't work.

thank you!! that works! But I found the speed is so low... is there any way I can disable the user's wallpaper or any configuration I can do to improve the speed? OR is there any good remote access app like this for internal LAN use?

Yes you can disable wallpaper an stuff. I use ultraVNC but install the server on all the computers when I first set them up. I disable wallpaper and all the other speed improvements.

I suggest installing a vnc server on all your computers on the LAN. Sc was designed for people outside your LAN to be able to allow you to connect to their PC without having to port forward their router. If any of your operating systems are not home versions you can use rdp. Rdp is part o windows. Start run mstsc. This is the client. Fir all the computers you want to connect to do system settings (properties my computer) remote settings, enable remote desktop.
