Heya. The Linux server can be used to port-forward a total
of 5 ports to each of the awaiting VNC Servers. Details here:
This gets tricker if your client is connected to the
Internet with a dynamic IP-address, or if they need to add another
PC and you're not there to setup their port-forwarding. The easiest
solution for that is to use EchoVNC (http://www.echovnc.com) in
conjunction with the RealVNC servers.
hope that helps,
