I think there is a misunderstanding around the "Add New Client" feature.
This features allows reverse connetion to be done. This means the
machine runing the VNC server becomes the "socket client" and the
machine that runs the VNC client (in listening mode) is the "socket
server". Thus, the network A machine should run a VNC server, the
machine on network B (which port 5500 is forwarded to) should run the
VNC viewer in listening mode. Then, machine of network A can
reverse-connect to machine of server B using its "Add new client"
feature. You have to specify network A machine IP address (or name).
This will let network A machine have a VNC viewer showing network B
Do all this make sense to you ? Hope this helps...
