With wifi i have no problem to see my iphone on my desktop, but over 3g it shows me an error.. 10061 or something..

after researching, I understand that i need to open a port 5900 but i have no idea how to do that.. i have NOD32 V5 installed on my computer as my antivirus but cant find the section of opening ports

Add some detail please - what exactly are you trying to do?
i can remote control my iphone will it's connected to wifi, but if i turn wifi of my iphone, and look up the 3G IP, then put it in my VNC it wont work..
it pops up an error.

how can i connect to my iphone (so i can see it on my desktop computer) over 3G connection?

i opened a port 5900 in the Windows Firewall.
Then in VNC i put in the data IP address that is on the iphone and click connect but VNC pops up an error message

VNC port open

Have you made sure you are using the IP address from your ISP not your local address when connection the VNC You may want to try our VNC Pocket Office. The default port is 5900 for VNC. Best to use that. :)
