Server uses wrong (internal LAN) IP

	Do you mean every machine inside your LAN has a corresponding public IP address?  That means there is a NAT?  Or at least, your machine has a corresponding public IP address?  If that's the case, normally, you could just need to put 66.140.87.26 in the vncviewer, and the rest is done by the router.
