2nd F# abouve middle C (Altissimo)

I have been able to learn and hit the six notes, C above middle C and chromatically up through the second F above middle C with no problem. As soon as I try F# I cannot get it or anything higher. If I move forward on the mouth piece a bit it will hit a high note but it sounds like a hollow squeak. Can any one tell me how to hit this note? I realize it might take a while but there must be somet specific thing you have to do with you mouth to hit these higher notes.... This is on an Alto sax....
