Remote Access

I setup VNC access to a desktop for a client recently, which they promptly b0rked by replacing their router and with it all the firewall/port forwarding settings - without telling me. In trying to get access to try and fix it, I explained how I would first need the IP address for the new router. I received this helpful email in response:

I think we were able to set up remote desktop.  I have the following
info. Let me know if this works.

IP Address bob-24f763ed307
Ext/Int Port 3389 for Remote Desktop
