Try having it forward 5800-6000 to that box.

Subject: Problem Connecting through Linksys router


Hi Everyone,

I've been monitoring this vnc list, and trying all sorts of things,  but I
still can't seem to get through my Linksys 4 port DSL router.  Using VNC,
I'm trying to connect my office (Linksys w/ DSL on small LAN) with my home
(basic dial-up connection).  Both are running Windows 98SE.  I've updated
the Linksys router firmware to a current version, and have the port
forwarding on the router set to forward ports 5900 and 5800 to the internal
address of one of the computers on the Lan.  I've also turned off Norton
Firewall on the office computer.

Internally (over the LAN), I have no problem connecting two computers using
either the VNC viewer or Internet Explorer.  When I try to connect (sending
to the office WAN address) from home, over the dial-up connection, it won't
connect.  I've tried using TightVNC, thinking the slow dial-up was causing a
problem, but it still won't connect.  Telnet works internally, but not over
the dial-up.  Any suggestions?  Thanks for your help.

Randy
