Windows 7: Firewall & a VNC connection error

Firewall & a VNC connection error

I've installed a VNC client by Jaadu both on my win 7 64 system & my iPhone.

Everything went smoothly until I applied the FreeSSHd encryption program.

When I try to connect with the computer the iphone gets this error:

Connection Error:

connection refused. You may have a firewall blocking access. Please check your connection settings & try again.

Now FreeSSHd has forums, but for some reason I get get past the challenge textbox. I've tried several times with different browers. It just wont let me post a question there.

I've looked in the firewall section in the control panel, but I dont see anything about FreeSSHd to enable?

Any help or ideas?

If it helps anyone, in the FreeSShd settings, under Server Status

SSH server is not running

and has a big red X

Where it actually should be running with a green check, but isnt.

Right under neath it there is a "Click here to start" link, but even though I am able to click it, its not activating?

I'm going to assume this is whats holding up the firewall?
