I'm not sure sure what you are trying to do, or how you are going
about it. Let's assume that you wish to connect to an existing
iceweasel instance from a remote host.
First, try connecting from the same host. On that host, try the
command 'iceweasel -new-window http://www.debian.org'. What happens?
