Bug Description

When doing the following:
1) Assist student
2) Close VNC
3) Broadcast teacher
4) Stop broadcasts
5) Assist student

...then Assist student in (5) doesn't work.

== SRU ==

A bad variable reuse in the code leads to bad port numbers breaking the "Assist student" function.

[test case]
1) Assist student
2) Close VNC
3) Broadcast teacher
4) Stop broadcasts
5) Assist student

5) is currently failing, post-SRU, it works

[regression potential]
Very limited, the diff is easy to read and it's an obvious mistake that's been solved.
