Cannot detect RealVNC at windows startup

this is the first time i have had problems with realvnc not loading at startup.

i think it gives you option to punch thru windows firewall.

So how do i set it manually, please

Hiya pal

To set the port manually for VNC

1. Open CP
2. Goto "Windows Firewall"
3. Click "Advanced Settings"
4. Click "Inbound Rules"
5. Click "New Rule"
6. Select "Port" click "Next"
7. Select "TCP" enter 5900 in the Specific local ports section click "next"
8. Select "Allow this connection" click next
9. Choose the appropriate options under "Domain" "Private" & "Public" click next
10. Give the rule a name eg. VNC out click "Finish"

Repeat the above for "Outbound" aswell and give that another name
