back to the basics...
VNC server on windows "listens" to port 5800 & 5900.
Only one thing can listen to a port at a time.
So on your firewall to allow multiple PC inside to listen each must
have it's own port on the firewall.
So when you setup your router, you must point to the real port from
the one you are using on the "wall".
external:5800 ---> internal1:5800
external:5801 ---> internal2:5800
external:5802 ---> internal3:5800
external:5803 ---> internal4:5800
same for 5900.
when accessing from the outside you would use external:0 for
internal1 and external:1 for internal2 and so on.
