Beginner's stupid question

Not a stupid question! It is kinda tricky.
You have to map your ADSL Modem to the LAN address AND port number - thus
Map WAN to 10.10.10.100 port 580n where n is the number of your VNC Screen
Each modem has different ways to program it so I cant give an exact
example - but the important things is to ensure that you have port 580n
mapped from the outside world to the inside world
Also ensure that you address the LAN system with a WAN IP address - do not
forget that 10.10.10.100 is NOT visible to the outside world.
One way to do this is to get a dynamic IP address (look at
you then connect to http://dynamicIP.no-ip.com:580n for Web interface or
dynamicIP.no-ip.com:n the web interface is often more efficient I have
