Start here and read up on VNC server. Its very commonly used for Linux remote desktop access.

Do you have to set routers up so the port is up and open!

Well yes, you must be able to reach your system either by IP or hostname resolution and the port must be opened through the network. You can manually specify the ports in the VNC config files if you need to change them.

You can set the port to whatever you need to.

Here are some guides I found on teh googlez

Notice the -httpport option. You can specify that to anything including port 80, just make sure nothing is already using that port.
