Failed to Connect to Server

When you say WAN, you mean the Internet side? Or is it really a WAN? That means your WinNT is a gateway connecting two LAN's?
First, have you applied SP6a to your WinNT? How about IE? Second, make sure that within the LAN, a viewer can connect to your (WinNT's )VNC server. If this part doesn't work (from what I understood, this seems to be your case), you don't have to look further; look into your WinNT. Your problem happened after you installed your WinRoute Pro, right? Check your software's manual to see if it's change your WinNT IP address in some way, and how to do "port forwarding" to itself.
