I loaded REAL VNC on my home computer. Set it to port 5555 and java to 5455.
Its on service mode.
I have laptop on wireless and the VNC computer wired.
Router is: USR8054. Ports are open as Special Appz TCP trigger and ports.
I use dyndns.org to alias my ip since its dynamic.

Problem: after resolving all that....i cannot access the VNC on my home computer anywhere BUT local.
What gives?

anyone know?

Instead of using special application you need to use virtual server (may also be called port forwarding depending on router model).

cthe_artiste,
what snerkel says it´s real, on NAT==> Virtual Server, you need to specify the port from outside and specify local port and IP to route that traffic.

oh one more thing: virtual server has been open to the specific ports.

do you have a firewall (XP or personal) installed on those PCs?
