I have a netgear DG814 router with an ADSL connection.

I have VNC server and I am running it on one of my client pcs, its local address is 192.168.0.110

My ADSL Conenction has a static IP 194.x.x.x

I was wondering how I would go about connecting to the VNCserver from outside my network?

Do i need to set up port forwarding for VNC?

Thanks for any help

Forward 5800 to access it with a web browser and 5900 to access it with the vnc client
