I am trying to connect to you computer which is in a lan, but i am getting connection refused,vnc is installed on the computer and the server is running. I am able to connect to the same computer using VNC using a different computer but which is in the same lan. I tried connecting to that computer from a different location, it gives connection refused. Can anyone help me with this?

I’ve had that problem. Try “kill all clients” on the server.
If it won’t accept the password then clear out the password and save it then enter the password. Be sure you set the password in both places – right click server icon and properties and also in administration-show default settings. If you set the password when first installed it seems to work ok but if you change the password and don’t change it in both places you will have trouble. All this is from my experience with TightVNC.

    If I read your situation correctly, you are trying to make a VNC connection from a different subnet to the VNC server. In this case, if connection works OK from PC in the same subnet as server your problem is IP related. Either the correct routing information is not available (needs to be both ways), or VNC is only accepting connections from its own subnet (this could be firewall related). Check first whether you can ping systems in both directions, then check any firewall settings. I don't have any experience with current VNC, does it have IP address blocking capability ??
