Okay, I was having trouble using directX and OpenGL to work, and now they do.
BUT there is a problem remains: HOW TO USE IT AT SCHOOL!
I am using TightVNC to access my PC from school - and the default port configuration is
It doesn't work when I have it on 5900 for main, it just shows the page header/footer and a blank screen.
This leads me to believe that they have ports that are blocked.
Then, I set it to:
and tried it, and got red X in one computer lab, and the applet loads on the macs.
I found out that the other computers just don't have java, and the macs do - plus the macs don't block ports.
The Windows XP lab does contain java-enabled computers, and i know this because I've seen kids play RuneScape (java!) and I have used java applets.
BUT I can't log in on the macs when MAIN is on Port 80, so....
I need a port that will not be blocked, but WILL let me through.
