Heya. The first thing you're doing wrong is trying to
describe the problem you're having using machine names and not
IP addresses. :) Please re-phrase your question, telling us the
IP address of "zoom" and "lolo" and the others.
Also, please confirm that you can successfully "ping"
each of the machines you want to connect to. So, on "zoom",
start an MSDOS shell, and type "ping a.b.c.d" where "a.b.c.d"
is the IP-address of your other machines. I find that over
50-percent of the time, when people are having trouble getting
VNC to connect correctly, the problems lies in the connectivity
of the LAN and not in the VNC software. So, get "ping" working
Keep us posted!
