Is Fast User Switching enabled?
Also, you only need to know the WAN IP if you're outside the router.
Further, how do you have port-forwarding configured? Is it port 5900 to port
5900 on pc#1, port 5901 to port 5900 on pc#2, or is it port 5900 to port
5900 on PC#2, port 5901 to port 5901 on PC#2, etc? More info, please. Just
want to double-check your port-forwarding configs..
Theoretically, if you want PC#2, you'd open VNC Viewer and type in
wan.ip.of.LAN:1 (or ::5901, depending on your flavor of VNC) and if you
wanted PC#1, you'd substitute ::5900, etc.

My apologies. I originally posted this as a reply instead of as a new post.
I'm having some trouble connecting to various machines that are behind
routers. I've already completed the steps needed for Port Forwarding and
the firewalls are set also. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. If I have
both the WAN IP and the LAN IP, in which order or format should they be?
