What would the rule look like to allow the LAN to connect to the firewall using VNC (UltraVNC)?

I can access any PC on the LAN except the Firewall, so im guessing it needs a rule.

I have tried:
LAN -> Firewall
Service: VNC
Permit

Bt default there is a rule that allows all traffic between the firewall and the LAN, so than you would not need any special rule for VNC.

If the above is not true for you:

It could be that VNC re-initiates a connection from the Firewall to the viewer, so it that case you would also need to allow traffic from the Firewall to the LAN on the VNC ports.

So:

Source: LAN and Firewall
Destination: LAN and Firewall
Service: VNC (basicly 5900-5909 for viewer and 5800-5809 for java applet if you use that, and that 5900/5800 for port 0 or 'auto' mode, 5901/5801 for port 1, etc.)
Permit

Maybe this works...

It's not worked for me. I've tried everything (I guessed) Using RAdmin now - perfectly

In VNC itself you can restrict the IP addresses that can connect to it... Maybe that is/was configured badly?

I VNC to the Firewall all the time, so it is not an inherent problem to KWF.

But Radmin's just fine also, of course Smile

"VNC to the Firewall " - no problem, but I've experienced problems with access to the intranet PC via port-mapping... RAdmin got worked from the first seconds...

Yes it was VNC config not WinRoute causing the problem Embarassed
Thanks for the replies, by the way VNC is free, RAdmin costs. Very Happy
