OK I'm learning Linux on the fly and need some help. I just installed Mandrake 9.2 on a new box. I have a network of 4 pcs, the linux box, win2k machine and two laptops running win2k. I have just instal realvnc on the linux box and all window pc's.

I am able to connect to all the windows pc's from the linux box but can connect to the linux box from the windows pc's. I get an error that the local loopback connections are disabled?

What am I doing wrong here?

Look at the below link and search for loopback:

But on your windows boxes, you might want to install tightvnc ... it can allow loopback without editing the registry from the client:
