	Heya. As tricky as your situation sounds to you, it is
fortunately a fairly common situation. Here's a URL to another
VNC user's experience getting past similar hurdles:

http://faq.gotomyvnc.com/fom-serve/cache/127.html

	The key suggestion in there is to install a "dynamic DNS"
client on one PC on both LAN's. Alternatively, some of the newer
"DSL routers" actually have dynamic DNS clients built into them.
Once this dynamic-DNS client is in place, and you've setup the
"port-forwarding" of your routers correctly, you'll be able to
connect pretty easily with VNC.

	Hope this helps!
