You can also test your system by browsing to http://www.gotomyvnc.com and
have it scan for VNC servers on your network. If you have it configured
correctly, gotomyvnc will find the server and show it to you.
You could also try telnetting to port 5900 on your external IP from a
machine outside your network and see what the response is... You *should*
get "RFB 003.008" I believe. At least that's what I get here when I try to
telnet on port 5900 to a machine running the "Real" VNC server.

Do your server runs on port 5900 ?
Could you try to configure your router to explicitly forward port 5900
to your internal IP address as suggested by Arthur earlier ? You will
find the information on how to do this at "Adding a Custom Service" (5-2
of your manual). It is not told in the manual wich port are forwarded
when DMZ is activated (however, I only had a quick look at the
documentation). I hope specifying the port explicitly will help...
Tell us if it works please,
