Heya. So if you run the scan at http://www.GoToMyVNC.com from
the PC you've setup the port-forwarding to...what's the result? If it
doesn't detect your VNC Server, either the port-forwarding rule or the
firewall-exception rule on your VNC Server PC still needs adjusting.
>> "when connecting from the WAN"
> I use the public IP address of our edge router from a computer outside of
> our LAN
>> Are you actually connecting from a machine on the same LAN, but using the
>> WAN IP address of the router?
> When 'inside', I use the LAN address of the server from a client on the same
>> What do you mean by "I am seeing the router forward the proper port"
> What that I mean that I see the following firewall rule fire:
> Sat, 2005-12-10 20:28:05 - TCP packet - Source: outside computer address -
> Destination: WAN address of edge router -[Service access request successful
> Src 1164 Dst 5901 from WAN]
> This rule is a port forwarding rule that forwards a TCP request to the LAN
> address that I can successfully connect to when on the 'inside'.
