Ask Computer Networking Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm one of the experts who will be assisting you today.
May I ask, are both computers using the same internet connection and is it specifically VNC you need to use or any remote software?
that is correct, there are in same wi fi network
i might use any free software actually
Have you used Team Viewer before?
as far as i get access to PC, open aplications
no i want to avoid using internet
just wi fi without internet conection
You can use team viewer without internet as well, you just have to enable it to accept incoming LAN connections
But it's up to you, we can use either one, I use both
can we go with VNC?
Here's a link to VNC:Download VNC
You will need to install that on both machines
The default installation options are to install both viewer and server so we can just leave it like that, no need to set any custom options during the install
ok it is done i have it on both pc
should i obtain key ?
Free license only, without premium features
i got it
Ok, did you set a VNC password XXXXX both?
It's part of the installation process as well
ok, i got port conflict on xp can i change it ?
Right click the little VNC icon on the task bar (bottom right) and select options
Then click Advanced
You can set it to something like 5905
port number 5900 conflicting
what is next
Next we need the IP address of the computer you wish to connect to
Do you know how to get that?
now where do i enter this ip on Vista so i can see XP?
Ok, what you need to do is click Start and you should see "VNC Viewer"
Or the newer version might come up as "Start Listening VNC Viewer"
yes this one ask to enter server
Opening that might prompt your firewall to allow it to access depending on your configuration
In the box, where it says VNC Server
You need to put the IP address of the XP machine in
With the custom port we chose
Where the bit before the colon is the IP address and the bit after is the port
this is how i enter
it says conection refused
Refused is usually telling you there's something blocking it
Did you get any prompts from your Firewall to allow access to it?
one more thing
this XP pc using shared internet connection from another pc x
How do you mean?
It connects via another computer instead of directly to a router?
pc x connected to wi fi, but becouse of XP pc does not has wi fi addaptor, i m sharing internet from pc x with DSL cable
Oh ok and are you concerned it cannot see the Vista computer?
but it is using same wi fi theoretically
i m trying Vista to see XP
ok so what next i can do
connection refused 10061 code
What we can do to make sure they can communicate in the first place is, on the Vista computer, ping the IP address of the XP machine
Through the command prompt on the Vista machine, type ping 192.168.1.2
it says send packages 4 and got back 3
so looks like communicating
That's good enough
Try connecting again, make sure the port is set to 5905 on the XP machine's options
i m sorry
i thing i m different network
i need to switch network
sorry my bab
vista can not ping it
Ok then there's a hint to the problem
send 4 lost 4
What's the IP for the XP machine and the Vista machine at this moment?
yes i just click on repair
i recinnected to net and tried to ping again but lost
Could you give me the IP for the XP machine and the Vista machine
Reestablish net connection on XP, and ping it from vista, but data did not go send 4 lost 4
How about on Vista?
Are you still around?
i was waiting for you
Oh, I was asking you for the IP of the Vista machine, I only received the XP one from you
Ok and how about the Default Gateway for both
Is it the same?
both machines has same gateway
And can they both ping the gateway?
i did not try to ping gate way i can try
they can not ping gateway
nope, i gave you submust but i just checked with gateway ip they can not ping each other
gtwy on XP 192.168.1.1
and same thing for vista
So when you type ping 192.168.1.1 on both machines they fail?
on xp window just close
i acctually just did now on vista it got back 4 so did not lost this time
What was that for, the gateway?
Make sure it works on both
good good, xp also recived 4 pack back
Ok and on the XP machine type
so i can ping from both machines gateway
Now on the Vista machine typeping 192.168.1.2
it actually pinged
So here's what we have so far
Both machines have the correct IP configuration
just tried to connect with vnc
The Vista machine can ping XP but XP can't ping Vista
i got connected via vnc
Did it work this time?
How's that going, is it working properly?
sorry my browser freezed and crashed, but it work, and i got steady view,
thank you for help Martin
