Further to Chris Johansen's email, change the NAT forwarding at your work to
port 5900, use a VNC client at home to try connecting to the work PC. Make
sure that port 5900 is also open on your home PC if you do not have a direct
connection to the internet at home.
Since you have a DSL connection at work you might be able for testing
purposes to use the IP address to connect from home.
At work on the VNC server visit the following website
http://www.whatismyipaddress.com/ and make a note of the IP address. At
home using the VNC viewer type in the IP address you were given above, this
should work as long as the DSL router was not rebooted between the time you
got the IP address and the time you try at home (I also assume that port
5900 is open and the VNC server is using display number 0).

That enables the web browser at your (viewer) end to get the
VNC-via-browser applet from the VNC server at the remote end. Port 5900
must also be forwarded to actually view the remote end with your browser
running the applet. If you have the VNC viewer installed, you don't need
to use a browser; the viewer connects to the remote end port 5900. So, in
either case, port 5900 must be accessible.

If you can only enable a single port, it must be 5900; you must use the VNC
viewer at your end--a browser won't work. If you can enable a single
*range* of ports, a sloppy workaround would be to enable the block
5800--5900 (inclusive). Then you could use either a browser or the VNC
viewer from your end.
