I'm sure this is very simple but I just don't know enough about Linux to figure it out.
Slackware server at work
Windows 98 client (192.168.7.4)
I would like to setup VNC to both allow me to connect to my home pc and vise versa.
I need to figure out how to open the port to allow me out and also set it up to forward to my 98 client when I want to access it from home.

I think at least part of this needs to be done with ipchains in rc.firewall but not sure of correct syntax. There's a bunch of stuff already in there (that I did not setup).
Help?
:)
Thanks!
