I have a D-Link  Wired router, so may be different in that respect, but I
went to the router software and logged in as admin.
Click on the Advanced tab.
The Virtual Server button on the left is open, or active.
Here, I configured a new server entry as follows:

Name:  Any name you want
IP address:  The IP of your machine.
Protocol TCP
Both in and out ports at 5900.

Be sure to click the enabled radio button at the top.
I set to always, or you can set a schedule.    I only turn mine on when

Hope this helps some.
