Hi,
Well basically to get it two work I opened up the port that VNC uses on 
my router and gave  my public IP address as the address that VNC  
connects to, I set the window to 1 on the server (Running Mac OS X) and 
set the window number to 1 on the client (also running mac OS X) and I 
can now connect with out a problem Via Airport Via VNC to my home 
computer :-)
