Connecting when both routers are at 192.168.2.1 ?

There are a couple things wrong here. First, is that you can't connect to 192.168.2.1 over the Internet, as this is a private IP and
isn't routed. You have to use the public IP address on the external interface of the router, and not the internal IP address of the
system (assuming they are not the same). Some ISPs don't assign public IPs, so there won't be any way of creating an inbound
connection without obtaining one (for a few extra bucks, I bet they will give you one).
Also, you cannot connect to another system with the same IP address (unless you do NAT along the way). What I think is happening is
that your client is trying to connect to itself on port 5900. Also, do a "netstat -at" and see if this is actually 5900 or another
port like 5901.
