Hello Pam,

It would be the same over a network as over the internet. If accessing
a computer on a network via internet, you may not be able to do it,
although you can try setting up the incoming router (the one client,
probably) to route WinVNC's port to the client computer.  If the
computer has a static IP assigned by the ISP, then there shouldn't be
a problem, aside from firewall issues.

To get their IP address, have them click Start -> Run, and then type
COMMAND, then click OK. Then, when the command window appears, type
IPCONFIG. Then have them read off the IP ADDRESS line. If they get an
error with IPCONFIG, have them try WINIPCFG.

Best regards,
