    Hey Guys,
    I have a bit of a problem...I am trying to set up screen sharing between my macbook pro and mac mini. I have successfully set up screen sharing to use while both computers are connected to the same wireless network however my problem lies while trying to remotely control the mac mini on my macbook pro while away from my home.

    I have successfully set up port forwarding to both 3283 and 5900 but whenever I navigate to <external IP>:5900 in safari the page loads and all I get is is the text "RFB 003.889" on a white background and nothing else. I cant figure out what I am doing wrong here any help would be greatly appreciated!
