The behaviour of nettes.cgi simply indicates that you haven't set up port
forwarding correctly - the script appears to "hang" because it's waiting for
a response from the server but isn't getting one.
Please refer to http://www.realvnc.com/portforward.html for information on
configuring port forwarding for use with VNC.
