I just tested it on mine and hubby's machine and it worked great. Now, one problem. Our network is on cable through a router. How am I going to access my machine from hers (TN) if necessary? I know all the IP addresses because my cable one is static, the router's is static and my machine (only) is static. Will this app detect where to go on the network using the cable IP if my box is the only one running the viewer? ----- Original Message ----- From: "Pam" <ltf01@xxxxxxxxxx> To: <pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Saturday, March 08, 2003 5:39 PM Subject: [pcductape] Re: WinVNC > Right, but it's better because it's free, and what you are using it for is > exactly the same reason I got it for.
