I would appreciate any pointers on where I’m going wrong. I’ve read everything I could find over the last two days, so am seeking a hand up here if possible.
I have 2 sites, work and home I’m trying to connect via vnc. Home has an iMac with Leopard and a powerbook with Tiger. Router is a Netgear DG834 with a dynamic IP address. Is this a problem? I can buy a static address if necessary.
Work has same powerbook with tiger and G5s with Panther. Router is a Netgear RP614v4 with a static IP address. Opened the ports on the router.
Logmein.com works perfectly from work to home and locally on both networks, but doesn’t install on Panther, (and for unspecified reasons am unable at present to upgrade G5s to Tiger or Leopard). So I’m turning to Vine Server and Viewer. With erratic results - mea culpa.
Work connects locally no problem, but I can’t connect to work from home. Nor can I connect locally at home from Tiger to Leopard using Vine nor OSX, despite the Viewer showing the server running locally on the Leopard iMac. Leopard to Tiger works fine.
Remotely to the office from home fails everytime.
