I haven't tried to connect to VNC thru Wingate but I have used Wingate
elsewhere.  The builtin firewall will block the ports as others have said.

Wingate has a port-redirection option (often used to allow access to a mail
server etc.).  You might try entering the vnc port into this service.  Don't
forget to account for the screen number (ie. if vnc is screen 2, set the
port redirection to 5902).
