Problem Connecting through Linksys router rh.ccm "at"

Hi Everyone,

I've been monitoring this vnc list, and trying all sorts of things,  but
I still can't seem to get through my Linksys 4 port DSL router.  Using
VNC, I'm trying to connect my office (Linksys w/ DSL on small LAN) with
my home (basic dial-up connection).  Both are running Windows 98SE.  I've
updated the Linksys router firmware to a current version, and have the
port forwarding on the router set to forward ports 5900 and 5800 to the
internal address of one of the computers on the Lan.  I've also turned
off Norton Firewall on the office computer.

Internally (over the LAN), I have no problem connecting two computers
using either the VNC viewer or Internet Explorer.  When I try to connect
(sending to the office WAN address) from home, over the dial-up
connection, it won't connect.  I've tried using TightVNC, thinking the
slow dial-up was causing a problem, but it still won't connect.  Telnet
works internally, but not over the dial-up.  Any suggestions?  Thanks for
your help.
