Heya. I think the problem is that the server on your second
machine (.251) is still listening to "display 0" (ie, TCP 5900) rather
than "display 1" (TCP 5901). You can either change the VNC Server
to listen to the right port, or change the port-forwarding so that
it maps 5901 (external) to 192.168.0.251:5900 (internal).
A slightly more "scalable" way to do it is to install an
echoServer on one of your internal PC's, and setup port-forwarding
for just that one PC. Then from each of your RealVNC servers and
viewers, connect to that echoServer with the echoVNC utility. The
echoServer then acts as a "relay" for all of the VNC connections.
You can find more info at "www.echovnc.com".
Hope that helps!
