Thanks for you reply.
I double checked as follows:
Yes the server machine is an XP box, but it has an exception for VNC Server and viewer.
And there is a machine on the LAN that can connect to the VNC server, no problem.
Behind this firewall there is also a Linux machine with SSH running. I can connect to the Linux box via SSH. This proves that I have the correct external IP address and that I know how to forward ports on the forewall.
I double checked that the address I am forwarding the port to is correct

If the Windows machine is running Windows XP SP2, you'll need to disable its
firewall, or make VNC Server an Exception to it (VNC Enterprise Edition
4.1.3 will do this for you, if you wish).
Are you sure that you have the correct address for your LAN's firewall? Is
it pingable? Error 10060 means that there was absolutely no response at all
from the target machine, which is consistent with a firewall being in place,
with the computer not existing, or with the address being wrong (and
pointing to a machine that doesn't exist...)
