Remote web connect to a vncserver


I have a vncserver running on my home network.

I have ports forwarded to the machine 5900 & 5800 TCP

vncserver is running on screen 15 (i.e.
Code:
vncserver :15
when I started it)

I'm trying to use krdc to connect to the server.

What do I type in to the adress field?

I've tried 'ipaddress:15' 'ipaddress:5900', etc.

It just says 'Establishing connection'

Update:

I can connect via firefox if I start the vncserver with the '-httpport' option. Then I had to forward port 5815 also.

But still cannot get krdc to connect. It sticks at 'Authenticating...'

Actually, you will need to forward port 5915 too. Only the initial connection will be using port 5815, but the rest of the actual vnc session will use port 5915. At least, that is the behaviour I see on my own pc-to-server connection using the realvnc program.
