freenx client setup issue (remote connection over internet)

Hello everyone,

I'm currently using freenx over LAN - which works flawless by the way

Now I'm trying to establish a remote connection over the web:
                                                         --- [PC Nr.A]
[nx client laptop] --- [web] --- [firewall] --- [switch] --- [PC Nr.x]
                                                         --- [...]
I want to connect to PC Nr.A
(lets assume that PC Nr.A's IP is and my IP (assign from my ISP) is

What do I type in the host field in nx's configuration

This doesn't work What's the correct syntax?

Thanks for your help,

Probably the WAN IP address of your firewall and its the port number for the NX server:

That portnum needs to be port forwarded in your firewall to the NX server.

Thank you for you input Mr. C.
FreeNX uses ssh (Port 22) by default. I did make a rule in my firewall forwarding port22. Unfortunately that didn't do the trick.
