You have to setup a port mapping on your cable router to map port 5800 to the private IP address of the PC running realVNC on your home network.

Then connect to the public IP address (your cable router) from work and it will direct you to the realVNC computer.

if you open the port on your cable modem (assuming your cable modem runs a nat) for vnc you will be able to get a free no-ip which can be run on your computer and then you would be able to connect to it directly from that.

ex.

    if you got www.yourname.no-ip.com you would be able to use this as the address in your vnc window from work to connect to the computer running the vnc service at home.

visit www.no-ip.com for further info on this.

remember if you are running a NAT you will have to open the ports for VNC on it before any of this will work.

hope this helps
