first is that i can't get VNC to work anymore since i bought a new router. I get the error "the connection closed unexpectedly". the new router is a D-Link DIR-655 with the latest firmware (11/08). it worked fine with my old simple dlink router without any port forwarding or anything special. things i have done: client and host are same version (4.1.2) made sure winvnc4.exe is on the host's windows firewall exceptions list added port 5900 TCP and UDP to the same list tried forwarding the same ports with the router reinstalled VNC on both client and host installed it on a third comp i'm out of ideas. any tips?
