I am stuck..
I installed the latest VNC server on Fedora Core 2 and client on Windows XP.
When I am on the inside of the network, I can connect to a running Xvnc
process, but when I am on the WAN I can't. The VNC Viewer error I get back
is: "unable to connect to host: Connection timed out (10060)", which after
reading this forum I interpret to mean that no process is listening to the
request. I've painstakingly sifting through all the messages from the router
and it successfully forwards the VNC TCP request to the machine on which VNC
is running, but I can't get a VNC session going from the WAN side. Anyone
have any good ideas how further to debug this problem?

[Service access request successful Src 1164 Dst 5901 from WAN]
And VNC server is running:

Looking forward to get unstuck.
