Hi, I'm having trouble setting up my arch box to run x11vnc. I've forwared port 5900 in my router to 192.168.1.10 (I setup the arch box with this static ip) and I can connect fine within my network. However I've tried connecting outside my network (via my external ip) without any success.
I've tried forwarding the port through iptables with (and many variations aswell):
#iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -d 0/0 -s 0/0 --dport 5900 -j ACCEPT
Also running a port scan on the local ip shows port 5900 is open, however port scanning my external ip just shows ports 23 and 80 open.
I've run out of ideas, any help is appreciated

Thanks for the reply, but unfortunately the port still isn't open.
Still had no luck, could still use some help
Well I feel quite stupid :S. I had the ip in my router as 192.168.1.110 instead of .10, anyway all good now.
