    What kind of software firewall are you runnin? Most will do this for you.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Sounds like you are on a company network, talk to your IT support.

    Re: i am running vnc and would like to know the

    I don't use VNC (I refused to have it installed), so I don't know how it works. Let's assume it operates as a "server," and allows "client" connections from the network. In this case, the connection should be logged as "incoming." If, on the other hand, VNC operates as a client but "calls home" to a particular server frequently to see if anyone wants access, the other computer's address may be logged as an outbound connection.

    If you are not using a software firewall that keeps detailed logs of inbound connections, you can try a free trial of Agnitum's Outpost Firewall Pro or Sygate Personal Firewall Pro. (If you are running other personal firewall software, do not try to run the new product at the same time.)

    What OS are you running? What VNC version? Version 4 puts an entry into an event log file (can't remember which one) on NT/2k/xp systems.

    Have you checked the event logs? I'll check again at work but I'm sure I've seen entries for VNC.
