X Windows


I'm trying to set a router so that X Windows session can use NAT to connect to a particular server.

I use the lines below in the router config to connect to the internal machine

ip nat inside source static tcp 6000 3389 extendable
ip nat inside source static udp 6000 3389 extendable

However, X Windows does not work from external machines.  Is there any other commands that i should be entering in order to get X Windows working?


1 Solution
try opening udp port 177 for xdmcp
Source port could be TCP 6000 - 6003
