Firstly, wrong forum section. This should be posted in "General Questions".

You need to forward from port 5900 to port 5900 AS WELL. The IP address should be set to the computer running VNC. It should be a Static IP address so it doesn't change or you'll have to change the port forwarding settings everytime.
