> I have number of PCs hooked up with my NTECH wireless router+ADSL modem.
> Internal VNC works great. I configured portfording, using both the preset
> in the user and configured them manually. disabled the FW for test purpose
> and  run the VNC testpage. result :
> The IP address requesting this web page is xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (I am not that
> stupid :-)) 
> Connecting to port 5900 ... succeeded. 
> Waiting for server to send version string... 
> Found a server supporting protocol version 3.8. 
> however when testing by entering the IP address the testpage (or use the
> java client) gives me returns   Connection refused.
> Questions:
> 
> 1. can you loop back from your own network, using 'modem' IP address.
> 2. if my isp would block this port (or my router) would the testpage work?
> 3 any other suggestions?
