I can not connect to my vnc server externally!!! : (

I have installed Tightvnc. All setup ok etc. I tried to connect to it from my work place or a friends machine, and It does not seem to find my vnc machine. The server is up and running. I can connect to it locally (loopback) but not from outside the plusnet domain.

Can anyone help out here.

Thanks

How do you connect your home machine to the internet? If it is via a router, you need to forward certain ports in order to make your VNC server work externally.

Also, if your VNC server is behind a firewall you'll need to let it through.

is it hosted on your cgi account or in your home. not sure how plusnet feels about vnc on the cgi platform - they certainly didn't like my eggdrop bot (which btw i couldn't telnet to)
