To work like PC Anywhere VNC requires a static IP address, or at least you knowing the current dynamic IP. You should have SSL installed on both client and host machines, and use that to connect unless this is over your home LAN, in which such security is not nessesary.

To set up your router, make sure the port for SSL is forwarded to the computer you want to access, and then use SSL to connect to your current IP. Then use the VNC client to connect to (for example) "myserver:1", the number one being the display number (you can have several different displays, each for a different user).

It is best to search for a tutorial on this subject, try googling "VNC SSL Linux" and you're sure to find one.

are you connecting from another linux box or a winblows machine?
if you are using anohter linux box it would be pretty easy to set up X forwarding, wich might use a little less bandwith than vnc.

You could do cygwin on the windows box for X forwarding too. As to the static IP issue, you could also use one of the dynamic dns services like dyndns.org to provide name resolution to dynamic IPs.

If you are connecting between two linux clients and only need shell access by far the easiest way would be to log in with SSH.
