Very similar to using a hardware modem/router -- just port-forward port 5900
to server #1's port 5900; port-forward port 5901 to server2's port 5900 and
so forth. It should work like a charm. That's one of the easiest ways to
handle it so that you don't have to specify a unique port on each server.
That way the only configuration that has to be done is on the router, in
this case a linux box acting as a router. Then, if the user wants to connect
to system #3, for example, he'll open a new vnc client and tell it to
connect to 111.222.333.444:2 and it'll "just work" providing you have the
port-forwarding configured correctly. If you want to make it easier on the
user, just start the port forwarding at 5901 for server #1's port 5900.

Subject: Howto work with 5 pc's and a linux server/router
I am a first time user of this mailinglist.
Q: I have a client who is willing to use RealVNC. He has 5 pc in a office
and one at home.
The one at home has to have a client running and the 5 pc's at the office a
server. I will let the pc's at the office look for a specific port address.
The linux server will forward the portnumbers to the correct pc's.
How does the viewer choose between the 5 pc's at the office? Can I give
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:5910 to let him connect to the server that is waiting on
Or?????? How to deal with this kind of problems?
