Virtual network computing and Workstation 6.x
  

Hello friends I am here to tell you that Workstation 6.x on a Windows Vista 64-bits machine and try to attach to a Windows XP guest from a different system in my LAN using Ultra VNC, but I kept on getting the message which was something like this "Failed to connect to server!" messages from the VNC Viewer. I tried disabling the firewalls on the Workstation host and guest and on the machine which I was trying to connect from, but that was of no help.

Re: Virtual network computing and Workstation 6.x

Are you using bridged networking or NAT ?Try with bridged and it should work. If you're using NAT, you'll have to configure the port forwarding rules for VNC on the VMware router.

Accept my heartfelt thanks for so quick reply. Unfortunately I'm already using bridged networking, so that's not the solution. Can you give me some other suggestion?

OK tell me one thing that has you activated VNC? Which can be done as follows :In the guest login; go to VM and then navigate to; Settings and then navigate to; Options and then navigate to; Remote Display and then navigate to; Enable remote display
