Both of you computer cannot have the same ip address. You have to change the
address of one of them. Change only the last bit. for example if your ip
126.96.36.199 change one of the computer to 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206.
change only the last part.
After doing that try to ping your computer by opening a command prompt and
if you get the reply back then you are all set. Try connecting to your
computer by just typing the ip address. if that doesnt work type
ip_addrss:1, ip_addrsess:2 .
hope that helps.

Subject: PLEASE HELP US :>(
Please Help Us :>(
I have degenerative Spinal Stenosis that is in
it's advanced stage. I have a young daughter who
is can not do the maintenance involved to keep
her computer stable. Since I am confined to my
bed most all the time, I searched for a way to
take care and keep an eye on my daughters computer
from my computer located in a different room on
the other side of our home next to my bed. We have
a very simple network that is hooked up to our two
computers only. There are no additional computers
besides our two on this network. Both computers
have Windows XP Home Addition installed.
I found Tight VNC on ask Jeeves and was happy
that there might be a solution to our problem.
I have read all the info I can find on this
product and set it up according to the
instructions. The only problem I have had so
far is this one:
When I tried to connect to the server,this
window comes up asking for a Host. I don't
know what the host is! Is it a number or
what? At first I thought it wanted our
IP address but both our computers are using
the same IP address. I did notice something
about a port, but where do I find this port
and on which computer. Or is it both? Then
just what do I do with this Port will it
solve my problem?
Please someone help me figure this out it is
so important to us. Please put it in a dummies
language and include all I need to know to
get this program running smoothly.
Thank you all for your kindness and valuable time,
