thanks for very much for the info. I got port
forwarding set up, but for some reason my friend still
cannot connect. I have port 5900 forwarded to
192.168.0.2, which is the same port listed for http
traffic. I also tried 0.1 and 0.3, but neither
I think I'm missing some very simple step.
Thanks for any more help,
