Pretty easy to set up - I have a number of these coming into our network.

First, you need to set up an Inbound NAT entry.  You will use the TCP 
protocol and set the "External port range" to 5900 (from and to).  The NAT 
IP will be your inside host -  Local port will also be 5900. 
Then you need to add a firewall rule to allow traffic in - the easy way to 
do this is check the box at the bottom of the page where you create the 
Inbound NAT entry - "Auto-add a firewall rule to permit traffic through this 
NAT rule".  This will add a firewall rule that will allow traffic into the 
WAN interface that is destined for your local host (inside IP).
