I want to remotely access my home ubuntu machine using VNC. I have followed the link here How To Configure Remote Access To Your Ubuntu Desktop

Now, I can remote access using the internal network. I enabled port forwarding on my spectrum home router from port 5900 to internal ip address of the ubuntu machine and port # 5900 as shown in the screenshot below. However, when using vnc to connect to (mypublicaddress::5900), I was not able to log in. What should I do to be able to remotly access using the public address of my home router

port forwarding
