Ok. I understand a bit better now. I tend to agree with you regarding your
work machine being behind a firewall... I suspect if you check with your
IS/IT department they will tell you that the server is behind a firewall as
well, but that SSH is allowed through the firewall, but VNC is not. If you
ask them nicely, they may permit you to connect to your PC at home via VNC
or SSH or something similar... Alternatively you may want to look at one of
the services which will allow you to connect two firewalled PCs without
modifying the firewalls.

I'm not sure I know how to do the first point.
For the second point I enabled the access of the VNC to any port in my
BitDefender and also in Win Firewall. This is done already. The thing is
that from another win machine, and even from another country my brother
could connect to my win pc, but from work ( RH for 64bit AMD) I cannot get
any answer for the VNC.
Simply put: from an XP machine it works, from a linux not. I think it is
worth telling you some other things.
There is a server on our lan at work to which I can do an SSH from wherever
I want. But on my linux PC on my desk SSH does not work. So I think my pc is
behind a firewall and the server not. But even from the server I can not
connect to my win pc at home :((((((((((((((
Any other hints?
