Asuming you only have one router, don't port farward unless you want to be able to connect to the VNC server from the internet. If, However, you do wish to connect from the internet it is recommended that you use SSH tunneling or at least use UltraVNC with it's strongest key and a very strong password (asuming you are using windows if you are using Linux/BSD you have to use a SSH tunnel).
