    Well, let us start at the beginning. Are you successfully able to connect to your computer from another computer (not your palm) from outside your network?

    The error you have usually comes up when the IP address is incorrect, or the firewall isn't allowing you to get to the specific computer.

    You need to forward the ports from router to your individual computer's ip address. The port is 5900. Did you do that step?

    This guy uses a linksys router and has written out what to do in the router:

    yes, i went into my router and then clicked applications and gaming, then port range forwarding, start 5900 end 5900 tcp, then ip address, and then clicked enable

    still dont work

    what about port triggering or anything else in there (dont mess with it?)

    thanks, ron

    What PalmOS VPN Client are you using? You haven't mentioned one yet. I assume that you will need one that does PPTP.

    Try start address 5800 and end address 5999 in your router configuration.
    Also check to see if you can connect from another computer over the internet, to rule out configuration settings as the cause.

    try going to www.myipaddress.com and it will show your ip address. Try use that ip address and put into your PalmVNC ip address field. I think if you use router and going into ipconfig screen from your computer it's not your actual ip address from your isp. It's a router generated local IP.

    Or you can unplug your router and connect your computer straight to the internet, then check your ipconfig screen.

    hope this help

    PalmVNC is not a VPN client, if you were answering my question. If you are saying that you don't need a VPN client on the 700p to connect to your firewall/router then your entire network is exposed to the Internet, which is not a good thing at all. Are you certain that your router does not require a VPN client?

    I think the OP was asking about PalmVNC program, am I right or am I just confuse ???? PalmVNC require your real (from ISP) IP address not the local ip address that your router assign to your computer locally. And then you have to go configure your router to allow port forwarding range of 5800-5900.

    I user palmVNC on my 700p and window XP pro box, and it work awesome. The error that the OP stated on the top of the thread seem like he input the wrong IP address in the PalmVNC program on the palm. Make sure your IP is not 192.xx.xx.x because that is your local IP address.

    I have an IPSEC VPN firewall/router on my home cable modem. I have an IPSEC VPN client on my 700p. I connect to my home network with the VPN client. I then use PalmVNC to connect to any network PC using the internal 192.x.x.x addresses. Because I use a VPN client, I do not have to port forward at all and I can use internal IP addresses. If I don't use a VPN client, I am outside of the network and would then have to connect to router's IP address and set it to forward to 1 PC. With a VPN, I can connect to many PCs on the network.

    What are you trying to accomplish with your treo and computer set up ???
    remotely control your pc? transfer file ?

    I use my combo to remotely look at documents on my computer and if I want to have to document I would email it to my self, use the website that normally cant access on my palm (such as some banking, and financial institution site). If this is suffice your need PalmVNC is good for you and it's free (well maybe you can donate some money for their great software).

    There is story on treocentral front page a couple month back. Maybe try search the website for "VNCing around" and it should come up. There is extensive review and direction how to set it up, I think it's really great direction step by step.

    If you have just one computer at home connect to the internet via router and cable modem you don't really need VPN client just PalmVNC should do just fine. But if you have more than one computer network together and you have a need to control or view more than one of those computer I recomment VPN client to make it easier for you.

    Ron, I would like to help you, but I am not sure if you answered my question?

    Are you able to connect to your PC using VNC (or UltraVNC) from another COMPUTER outside of your network?

    port forwarding, firewalls, and passwords are my most common culprits for palmvnc. I can however confirm it works fine on my 700p.
