A Network that uses one External IP and share the connection among computers that are configured as LAN needs a Routing agent.
In order to be able to discriminate between the computer while connecting from the outside (The Internet) the Router needs to be able to maintain a Virtual Server with ports assignment. All current Entry Level Cable/DSL Routers (Wired or Wireless are capable to function in this manner).
It is much more complicated issue to achieve a similar configuration with software Routers, most of them would not provide such a configuration. So check ahead your specific Software Router capacities.
Install VNC server on each computer
that you would like to control. Assign to VNC a different port number on each computer (do not use the same port for more
than one computer).
External IP address is:
This will connect you to the LAN computer 2, since port 5820 is opened only to reach this computer IP number.
This method essentially uses the unique port assignment as the Routing agent Selector and can be used for other applications too as long as you can configure the ports that the application is using.
As an example, you can use Wake on LAN (WOL) to start one specific computer on a LAN through the Internet.
* Note 1.
VNC Ports - You can use other ports (I suggest to stay
around the same value 5800 to 5900 ).
** Note 2. You can Install both the server and the viewer on the same computer, and use the one or the other according to what you would like to do.
The viewer is use to connect and control other computer.
The Sever is used to allow connection to the current computer.
