You'll want to install the VNC package. You might just do `sudo apt-get install xtightvncviewer` and check the man pages, but details may depend on your desktop environment. Googling "ubuntu remote screen sharing" turns up a bunch of stuff including connecting to/from Mac OS X (which I didn't know you could do). VNC has been around "forever", and you can connect through an SSH tunnel if you need to.

sharing existing desktop session is possible by installing "x11vnc" package("VNC server to allow remote access to an existing X session").
if your problem is networking, refer there, we've given you an answer how to connect in GUI mode.

here I use the following scheme: when I go away, I start x11vnc on 127.0.0.1, then I contact my sshd and forward port to 127.0.0.1:5900(where x11vnc listens) then I connect it with any VNC viewer through encrypted channel. Note that my server is as well behind a router, I'm just forwarding port to sshd so I can get in from outside.
If your external IP is dynamic you can use solutions like dyndns.com etc.
