Router not forwarding VNC
Wed Sep 3 20:41:00 2003
I know this subject has been beaten to death, but I cannot VNC from outside my
Belkin wireless Cable/DSL gateway router. I have poured over many of the
postings already without avail. Here is where I stand so far:
1.) I use IE to access my router's IP (192.168.2.1), and it brings up a nifty
2.) I access the Virtual Servers section, and for inbound port I put 5900-5900
as well as 5800-5800.
3.) For private port I enter the same information.
4.) I point the ports my private IP address (192.168.2.15).
5.) After applying, I fire up the RealVNC Viewer and enter my WAN IP
(65.40.x.x, which I found using ShieldsUp). Fails to connect to server.
ShieldsUP reports that port 5900 is closed. I have tried changing the private
port to 5901, but the router will not accept the two port types to be
different numbers (the screen shots will clarify). Also, if I just type in my
WAN IP address into IE, a dialog box asking for my username and password pops
up. My router is password protected, but it does not have a user name. Any
ideas as to what this is? I posted some screen shots and some output files at

have ZoneAlarm Pro installed, but it has not been running.
