I, too, have used VNC for a long time. It works very well within my
small network of five desktops and three laptops; some attached via
cable and others WiFi. For a long time, I had no problems accessing my
earthquake computer with a laptop when visiting my children or even at
hotels and campgrounds. However, Insight has begun to change IP
addresses to curb personal web sites. This is a hindrance. A good
programmer can work around this my son tells me. I don't have the
expertize myself, however, one of my laptops still works thanks to tech
service. I talked to Insight about remote accessing my earthquake
computer. The tech said it was OK for what I was doing.
Also, I came acrossed one problem that might might interest some. I
guess the present earthquake computer has been on for over two years.
Recently I lost color presentation on the monitors that weren't
immediately attached to the desktop computer that runs WinSDR. My son
suggested that I shut down VNC and restart the earthquake computer. This
solved the problem. Interesting, too, I have one laptop that has the
newest version of VNC on it and it displayed the correct coloration the
