Using VNC to access my computers on my network

Jump to solution
Before installing McAfee, I used four computers on my local network using VNC.  These computers perform different functions that are part of a single project.  Now I can't access anything from anything.  Is there a procedure to "open up" access to VNC for these computers on my local network?

Ok not familiar with VNC or the port required but if you know the port number you can try

1.Double-click the McAfee shortcut icon on your computer's taskbar to open the McAfee Security Center. The Security Center is included with all McAfee programs

2.Click "PC Security" and select "Firewall."
 
3.Click "Ports and System Devices."
 
4.Click "Add." In the field provided, type "Microsoft Remote Desktop."
 
5.Enter "the port required" in the TCP field. This number is the port for the Microsoft Remote Desktop program.
 
6.Select "All PCs" in the drop-down menu next to the phrase, "Open Ports To."
 
7.Click "Save" to save your settings and allow RDP connections

Found that on net though unsure if it helps

Thank you.  I will try that tomorrow.  I'm sure I can  find out what port VNC uses on the web.

Not sure why this was marked as solved.  It is not.  I attempted to implement the suggestion and it did not work.  Not sure if it’s my understanding of the suggestion or my original question.

Only you or the mods can mark as solved try unmarking it it that is there. Did you find a port number it is added to the edit area and saved and things might work. If not better to call support and if first level unable to assist ask fr an escalation call back.

Is it 3389? enable the remote desktop item in that list of Ports and system services and Enable "Allow ICMP ping requests" under "Smart Advice and Advanced Settings" in McAfee Firewall.

that might help
