The problem might be the firmware version in your Linksys router. I've worked with three different
Linksys routers, two 4-port and one 8-port. I had to update the firmware in them to get VNC to work
properly. I use static IPs on the LAN side to avoid IP reassignments by DHCP. I'm using VNC
3.3.7. I have also successfully used VNC 4.0, but I like how 3.3.7 updates the screen better.

I have this setup:
Remote store with a Linksys Router. Port Forwarding is setup for each remote computer (in the
registry) and configured in the Linksys Router. We are able to connect to the remote computers.
HOWEVER, after maybe 10 minutes or so the remote connection drops. Our remote Linksys
Router has to be unplugged and plugged back in inorder for us to be able access the remote
computers through VNC again.
This is obviously extrememly frustrating. We were wondering if updating from 3.37 to 4.0 would fix
this? Have any of you had unexpected connections drop like this?
BTW, after a connection drops, I am able to connect to another remote location (in a different down,
different WAN IP, different router) so our local VNC seems unaffected.
