My Mac OS X Workstation has a fixed IP address on the local network (wifi) at 192.168.2.2
In the router firewall configuration I have configured, if it receives data on port 5900, forward it to 192.168.2.2.
When on the EDGE network with the iPhone, I will in mocha vnc as VNC server IP write
VNC Password is the Password I have defined on the Mac in Screen sharing , see How to configure VNC on Mac OS X
- 188.8.131.52 , and as port 5900 (Not the IP address for the Mac!)
With canyouseeme.org it is possible to check if the router has been configured to allow port 5900 access. At field What port type 5900, and click [Check]. In the center of the page the result is shown (below some google ads)

- A firewall stopping access on port 5900. A firewall may run on the PC/Mac
- Have installed PeerGuardian on the Mac/PC, and configured it to block some IP addresses.

- If the iPhone is not using wifi, but only the EDGE network, the IP address for the VNC Server given in Mocha VNC must be your Home router IP address. The router must also be configured to forward port 5900 traffic to your Mac/PC. To open port 5900 could be a security risk. Check the router manual for advice.
