    When you are at work, you will use your WAN IP address (ISP). You need to forward a port on your router to your 192.168.X.X address. In the VNC configuration, it will show you what port number it is running on. I usually change it too something else. I think the default is 5900 or 5800.

    If you look on the UltraVNC site and follow the help links, it should be obvious how to select multiple machines on a single network behind a router. Basically, you use the screen number and the public IP address.

    I'm thinking your ISP may not allow this. With my ISP, any connection request to any of the computers on my network must initiate from the INSIDE. I still haven't figured out how to get around this with VNC.

    If you can't have any requests come to your machine from outside, it limits a lot of uses. That really sucks, and I'd be looking for a new ISP! :(
