how to reach home computer from office computer:
You need either static or domain name service that resolves to your dynamic
ip on your home computer. I don't remember the site but it's listed in
how to reach office computer from home compuer:
you have to configure your firewall to allow and forward all incoming
traffic on port 5800 and 5900 to your office computer. To do this you'll
have to have static private ip for your office computer. If you have to use
dhcp, register your mac address on dhcp server to reserve a static ip. In
that way you will still use dhcp but will be given same ip all the time.
hope this is what you're looking for.
