OK, basically I have VNC server setup on my windows machine and currently when I'm on the same network in my house I am able to use chicken of VNC to connect to it.

However I do this using the IP Address 192.168.1.3 which is my internal IP address

If i do this when I'm not on my network, for example when I'm at university would it still connect in the same way?

Nope... That's only a LOCAL address... Millions of people around the world have that exact same LOCAL address... Millions.

You need to use your actual IP address... Click this link: http://www.whatsmyip.org/

...and you need to have the proper ports open on your home firewall that will forward the requests to the system you are trying to control.

connection refused: connect()

do you have a rule in your router's firewall that forwards port 5900 to the internal IP address of the system you want to control? If not, then the router doesn't know what to do with the request.

EDIT: That's probably what you mean you did...but just making sure.
