The client I am using is on XP using client 4.1.3, which may explain why there is no option to select the various hosts?  Perhaps it 
is an intended limitation of the free version?

You must be specifying what machine you are connecting to somehow. Instead of putting in <hostname> try <hostname>:1 (add ":1" to 
the end of whatever your machine is called). For Windows I recommend TightVNC, btw.


Using VNC 4.1.3 I connecting using LAN IP address of each host.   IP:1 does not work.   IP:host.0  and IP:host.1 both connect to the 
same screen 1 as does IP:screen.0 and IP:screen.1

Trying Tight VNC.

I am now wondering if the server is actually serving both screens.
