How to make it when the remote server behind load balance device.

 
I have a problem with the configuration of xmanager when the remote server behind LB.
The remote linux server is behind Load balance of F5. and has no routable outter IP , except inner IP. with the NAT configration on F5, we can use SSH to directly access the remote server.
But when I try to use Xmanager 2.0 to get graphical interface.I failed.
can you help me ? How do I config it

Xmanager is a server program, this means the connection is made from the remote host to your PC. For this reason, you must setup port forwarding in order to Xmanager in an NAT environment. You can find detailed instruction on how to setup port forwarding on Xmanager FAQ # 4:

/products/xmg_faq.html#p4

Setting up port forwarding can be very difficult for most users. You should consider using SSH instead. It is more secure and there is no need to setup port forwarding. To use Gnome or KDE, use the following commands:

Gnome: gnome-session &
KDE: start-kde &

Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
