Then you can either do the -connect option (run "winvnc -connect
ipaddress/hos)from the server side, or map port 5800 and 5900 at the
firewall to the particular workstation. If you have more then one
workstation that you are trying to connect to, then you will need to
configure each workstation to listen on a different port then the default
5800 and 5900. The easiest way to set this would be through the display
setting in the properties. Note the port # will be the display value plus
5800. So for example if you set it to listen with display 10 you will enter
at the viewer "vncviewer ipaddress:5810".

Read up in the documents for more detail.

Good luck

it is about inbound servicing individual PCs in a Lan behind an Axent/Raptor
firewall from a remote workstation. What I'm wondering particularly about is
as to how I would address individual IP adresses behind the firewall etc. I
can, however have - within boundaries of security - the firewall configured
according to needs

Are u asking about incoming connections or outgoing? Also what firewall do u
have, application level, Socks ?

You might have to go with some type of tunneling. Give us more details.

I do this all the time, just map your VNC connect port to the IP of the
machine you're looking for and viola.
Granted, this means you need either access to the firewall device or you'll
have to convince an admin to add the mapping for you.

Anyone's got a clue (besides reading the doc and me  being a wizard -
however competent to set firewall policies) of how to remotely support
people sitting behind a firewall (with NAT) translation
