    Arrow Help with Chicken of the VNC
    So I'm setting up vnc on my home computers for my parents since i'm moving away and am having a little problem. When I use the home windows machines with RealVNC and type the public ip and not the router ip, it connects to my mac just like it would with the router ip. But when i type the public ip into Chicken of the VNC, it comes up with a "connection terminated" dialog box but it works when i type in the router ip. Any idea why or if i'm doing something wrong? Thanks in advance.

    Are you connecting to your parents windows or osx pc?

    If your connecting from home have you made a redirect w/ no-ip.com and forwarded the port (5900 is the standard vnc port) on your parents router?

    When you connect to your parents computer you should be connecting as such in COTVNC
    server: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:5900, display=0, passwd as the passwd your set on your server. (x.x.x.x being your parents external ip (Link to find ext. ip)

    If you send me a screen shot of your parents vnc server config screen and your COTVNC connection and let me know if you've forwarded ports correctly I should be able to help you. Done a lot of this stuff.
