My friend downloaded VNC server, well she has a routor, and when I type the IP in it says that it cant connect to the host. So what should I do?, shes not that good with computers so what should I tell her to do to make me connect to VNC on her computer

Did she give you the right IP? She may have given you the IP of her computer on the network, and not the main IP. Tell her to go to http://www.ipchicken.com and give you the IP that shows up there.

Will this help connect to her PC if I find the real IP?

Yes it will....she may not have been giving you the right IP address. She may have to disable her firewall too.

She has to give you the IP of her router so you can get through
