I've been trying to connect using VNC to my computer at home, but keep getting the same error that the connection has timed out.
I tried pinging the IP but that also timed out.
I thought it may be a problem from my current location so did a trace route and that connected up till the 16th hop where it failed, the failed hop was at the local exchange of the computer i'm tryin to connect to (emmnsfi).
I have also tried to connect using the java version of VCN over the net but that also times out.
The computer i am trying to connect to is running XP Pro, and has had its firewall and Router all configured to allow access.
I am running Vista and have previously connected under XP but from whithin the same network but using the external ip and not the internal network IP e.g 195.168.**.**
any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
