I'm not familiar with the D-LINK 614+, but it sounds like you are
forwarding external traffic from port 5900 to the 192.168.0.104 PC's port
5800 (from now on displayed as 192.168.0.104:5800).  This won't work.  If
you just need vncviewer support, you need to forward the traffic to
192.168.0.104:5900.  If you need to access the java viewer via VNC's built
in HTTP server, you need to forward both 192.168.0.104:5900 and
192.168.0.104:5800 (Both examples assuming you are using display "0").
