Help: I want to connect to my network at home from other

The port information in Angelo's mail is incorrect.
VNC normally operates over a port in the range 5900-5999 - under Windows and
similarly-behaved platforms, this will be port 5900. The equivalent port in
the range 5800-5899 (in this case port 5800) is used purely to serve the
Java VNC Viewer - it's not used for the VNC protocol, so if you don't want
to use the Java Viewer, you don't need to redirect it.
