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

Setup port forwarding on the router to forward TCP port 5800 to the private ip address

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