I am trying to use VNCview to connect to my Mac OS X laptop. I have the built-in VNC server running and I can connect to it from another OS X laptop and also from my Newton, both over my wireless LAN. However, I cannot from my MobilePro 790. My client laptop and Newton can use Bonjour networking (aka Rendevous or zeroconf), so it's easy to just enter computername.local as the host to which I want to connect and it "just works". But, in VNCview on my H/PC, I am asked for a computer name and display to enter, and so far, nothing I have tried has resulted in a connection. I have tried the IP address, computername, and computername.local, all followed by either :0 or :1 for the display name. What exactly do I need to enter into the connection box for the computer name?

thanks,
isen

Hi,
I've only used VNC with PCs. Did you try installing vxutil from www.cam.com to check to make sure you have an IP address and can ping the Mac?
