Thanks, good stuff at (it helped me but not completely..)

... but it doesn't work for me so far. I think it has to do with "port forwarding". 
With the VNC Viewer I get thet error ; unable to connect to host: Connection timed out (10060). I did a set up of my port forwarding at my modem/router and this is enable as followed:

Server Name : SSH
Default port settings : 3600
Server Ip adress : Ubuntu box Ip adress

didn't work, second attempt:

Server Name : Terminal Server on UBU
 Default port settings : 5600
 Server Ip adress : Ubuntu box Ip adress
didn't work as well. One of the strange things with this VNC viewer is that it does not ask for the password that I have set on this Ubuntu box, or is this going to happen after connection?

What is your advice to get the connection working for me?

Cheers, Stephan
