How is the W2K server PC exposed to the outside world? Via a firewall with
NAT and a static IP?

Subject: VNC on Win2K Server
I have installed VNC on our Windows 2000 Server Machine. However, I am
unable to connect to our machine from outside of the office. When I try I
get a message saying either:
'This server does not have a valid password enabled. Until a password is
set, incoming connections cannot be accepted.'
'Your connection has been rejected.'
I have set a password using the properties dialog box. I have tried
accessing this via http using http://My IP:5800 in a browser and I get to
the login screen. If I enter an incorrect password I get the 1st message,
however if I enter the correct password I get the second error message.
I have asked our office network company to open incoming and outgoing VNC
ports on the firewal. I am also able to ping in to the server and out of the
I am lost now and don't know what else to try, please help!
