    I have my VNC servers on my PC's which I run on low ports b/c my workplace blocks the higher ones.  I want to access my PCs from my MAC, but this app doesn't seem to allow me to enter something like port 22, etc.....

    I know on the PC I had to enter a negative value, -5878 for port 22.  I can't get this to work in Chicken.   Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

      Can anyone shed some light on this issue?  I have my server running on port 23 (same problem, trying to get through a firewall) but cannot access the port with Chicken.  Also tried -5877 with no luck.

        I managed to connect to port 23 by entering display -5877.  It was a bit tricky, though.  I had to enter "5877" and then use the left arrow to position the cursor at the left, and then type "-".  And I had to click "Connect", rather than hit return.

        But that worked.
