I am very new to using VNC. I need to be able to remote control my Grandmothers old iMac and I had originally set up Vine Server on it.
I have since had to set up VNC on my fathers G4 and had used Apple’s built in server via System Preferences -> Sharing and was successful in remote accessing his G4.
Back to the iMac and yesterday I deleted Vine Server and enabled ARD as it ‘seemed simpler’ for me. By using a IBM laptop with a built in wireless modem, I tried using a Windows VNC client to connect to the iMac. It would see the server and asked for the password but it continually rejected the password - even though it was correct.
I then looked in the Activity Monitor app and noticed that i had a process showing in red - "OSXvnc-server (Not Responding).
Is this process still part of Vine Server and not ARD and can I go back to using just ARD?
I have set up port forwarding for ports 5500,5800,5900 on the Linksys AM300 ADSL modem as per www. portforward.com but are now at a loss as to why I can’t get this to work?
Any help would be appreciated.
