Heya. Some info here on your VNC port-number questions:
This describes how to setup the port-forwarding so that
you can access each of your 4 PC's individually, at the same time,
from the same location, with 4 independent VNC sessions. You
can't access them all with only *1* VNC session, which I think
you may be asking.
