from work computer put in "your ip:5800" or whatever port you picked.

get your ip by going to www.whatismyip.com

I setup multiple computers by ports 5801, 5802, 5803, etc
thats a good way to get your documents, etc. but when you use VNC you are sending a real-time representation of a desktop. 32 or 16 million colors... if you have a slow download at work or a slow upload at home this will lag it up. you can set up your computer to accept the incoming connections without actually seeing your home desktop. much faster.

Take this one step further. Go to dyndns.org and set up "your very own hostname". Install the client on your computer. If your home IP ever changes, the client will update for you!

For VNC, I recommend UltraVNC
