i've searched through some of the list and read the documentation but for whatever reason i must be missing something. i see in the documentation that you need to forward port "5900+N" for standard VNC and port "5800+N" for web/java VNC. i know how to forward and enable ports b/c i have a web and ftp server running and can get to those 2 services fine. i have a Linksys router. i just did a standard install of VNC server. i didn't change any settings/options. i can get to it fine from within my home network (192.168.1.x). i forwarded port 5900 (TCP only) on the router to the machine where VNC server is running. from work i try to hit my public static IP with VNC viewer (the same version i'm using successfully within my home network) and i get "unable to connect to hose: Connection timed out (10060).
any ideas what i'm missing here?
