my VNC Server is running on a Global IP (my home
machine)and i want to access it from the my office.
the only problem is we have a really good firewall.
currently i have the setting as
Accept connection on port : 80
and Server java on port :8080
if i do http://MYIP:8080 i m able to connect to my
machine and even the applets get downloaded. but i
never get the password prompt. however if i try to
access the same from other place (non firewalled) it
so can you guys help me out.
the standard answer will be
1. Open a port 5900 or ... (cant do that)
2. try to connect to a port which is open (how to find
out.. because if i run a portscaneer or something like
that.... :( Thats now allowed over here)
3. the only detail i have is port 80 is open.. as also
tried to host the IIS server and was able to browse
the pages on it
pls guys can you help me out
Home machine (Server) is running on WinXP SP 2
