I can get my VNC to work from one local computer to the other (using the 192.168.1.x ip address). However, I cannot access port 5900 when I have to use my server's external ip address, and thus I can't get my VNC to work.
I have a Linksys router and have followed all the instructions on this webpage step-by-step.
I have enabled an exception for my windows firewall on port 5900.
My ISP Time Warner is telling me that they are NOT blocking any ports
When connected directly to my ISP's modem and not through my linksys I am still unable to access port 5900
I am not certain whether there are some software firewalls on my computer but I know that no matter what, I am blocked behind my LAN. I've been working on this for about three days and am wondering what else I can do? :-/
