VNC over lan but not Internet?


Hi all im a linux noob and im having a mixture of joy and happiness with its use, with some help from you guys and reading lots i have managed to get SAMBA and vnc up and running and my P2P stuff. But recently i have hit a bit of a wall.

I cant seem to connect to my vnc session over the internet, it works fine over the LAN but not over the internet. I have set my router up to port forward so im confused. I have read a few posts but they go about SSH which kills me.

wares
Mandrake 9.2
x0rfbserver

I am not really concerned about secruity (as you can tell about me using VNC) i only use the pc as a P2P server and i wish to be able to connect from work to it!

any pointers would be appreciated...many thanks

The work firewall perhaps? The "if you do x, y or z dodgy things on our network you're in trouble" rules?

Check with your sysadmin / usage policies at work, otherwise he may kill you if he finds out from another (firewall logs) source.

Of course, if you say......

he will tell you where to go, but you won't be dead.

Remote access for work purposes is one thing, p2p is a whole new kettle of LART.

heheh i see what you mean.......i work for the IT Dept. at work and they already hate me for sending 100mb email attachments and thus clogging internal mail. lol

i dont think work firewall affects it cause it worked fine when pc was running w2k. And i cant connect from my other pc using the internet.....very weird.

does x0frbserver by deafult supposed to work over internet,
