Hi all,

I have recently put Kubuntu on 3 peoples computer. All of them are windows 
converts :-)

Anyway, One of these people is my mother-in-law and I set up a wireless 
network in her house for her to use her laptop and tonight I needed to help 
her with some stuff so I had her use krfb to send me an invitation so I could 
connect to her desktop using krdc, but the e-mail contained her computer IP 
and not her wan IP. So I had her give me her wan IP that her router was 
assigned from AT&T and I tried that but I couldn't get a connnection.

Is there a trick to this? is: vnc:/ at HER_WAN_IP the way to do it or 
am I way off?
