  1. I'm running Small business server 2000 with 2 network cards, one for the LAN and the other for WAN, I have a PC connected directly to the router on the WAN side, I want to be able to VNC from the server to my other PC, What changes do I need to make to allow VNC to go out the firewall?

    VNC uses TCP port 5900 so you will have to allow outgoing connections to that port and on the PC allow incoming connections to that port. You can set VNC to use some other port than the default of course.

    Keep in mind that VNC is not encrypted, meaning that anyone can sniff your passwords and see everything you do. You shouldn't use VNC if your LAN or WAN network is accessible by potentially hostile people.
