New User - Question about Port Routing, etc...

Hi, I've recently gotten RealVNC and I can use it to successfully connect to
VNC Servers within the intranet via any of the following names:
18.104.22.168 (the internal IP of the computer in question)
mycomputer:3 ("3" is the VNC Server Number I've set up)
So far, so good -- but now I'm trying to connect from outside the intranet,
and the computers I'm trying to connect to have no IP address to the outside
The next thing I did was give the VNC Server a number: "3" in this case. Then
I opened up port 5903 on the firewall like this:
Accept ANY TCP from "ANY_IP" 5903 to "ANY_IP" 5903
Now, I'm trying to connect from outside the intranet. Here's how:
22.214.171.124 (the IP of my entire domain to the outside world)
None of these work. I get a timeout error or a connection refused error.
Any ideas on where to start troubleshooting would be most appreciated!
