2 machines one external IP...

My issue is that I have 3 computers, 1 router which of course provides
internal IP's for my computers and connects to my real IP (actually I'm
using a DNS service to detect my ever changing DHCP assigned IP from my ISP
and map it to a world accessible host name).
Now if I'm out on the internet away from home I can only reach one of the
machines because I cannot see the internal IP's for the individual
So if I want to remote control any of the computers I have to set my router
to direct the VNC ports to one of the computers, connect to it with VNC from
outside the network, and launch the VNC viewer on the computer I connected
to. Now using the internal IP or network name I then VNC over to one of the
others. It gets slow and painful to do this!
I tried setting different display numbers but that doesn't work... anyone
have such an arrangement where they can get at all the computers on their
network individually? What am I missing?
