First create a Service.

Firewall -> Services -> Add

Setup the port parameters for VNC.

Now go to Access Rules -> WAN to LAN

Add a Rule Like This

Action: AllowSource: AnyDestination: Your External IP Address InterfaceService: The Service You CreatedUsers: AllSchedule: Always OnTick "Logging" and "Allow Fragmented Packets"

Now goto Network -> NAT Policies

Add a Policy like this:

Original: Any
Translated: Original
Destination: Your External IP Address Interface
Translated: IP address object of your LAN Device VNC is installed on, Create it if you have not already
Original: The VNC Service you created
