I sent the developer an email about connecting from outside your network. He responded as follows:
Thanks for your interest with Splashtop Remote.
It's not easy to do it now. I can provide you with two samples:
How do I connect to my home computer outside from home via remote network or 3G? : Splashtop Remote - Support
Connect from Outside - using Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router as an example : Splashtop Remote - Support
I don't suggest you to do this. One reason is that it's really not easy for common user to finish that network setup.
Another reason is that we are woring on new function which support 'visit from anywhere' without any network setup. Please be patient waiting for new version update.

Works well for me locally (havent gotten around to trying it outside of my LAN.)
Biggest issue Ive had so far was having to remember the password I set up when the IP of my server changed and I had to put it in again
I do wish it would support a monitor res of 1920x1200 natively. Dumping the desktop res to 1280x800 when the tablet connects screws up the shortcuts on my PC.

Yeah. Mine works now. Just had to add the port forwarding rule. TOO COOL!!! I love how the sound is streamed back to the tablet. Now if they would allow the desktop to stay at a larger resoulation so that the desktop stays correct if would be perfect. I guess though for free (with the TF puchase) I can't complain.

The IP you need for the router port forward is the private IP for the computer youre trying to remotely connect (typically 192.168.X.X) and the port of the protocol uses. Once you have that setup then the path you your computer is open for the application. The "whatismyip" is to give you the IP address to create a remote connection outside of your network.
Now if you need to check your IP on windows it depends on which version you have. But this way works for all modern windows:
On the computer youre trying to open up:
-select run or if windows 7 click in the search box
-type "cmd" (no quotes)
-type "ipconfig" (again no quotes)
Look at the output and youll see IP addresses that are private that youll need to use for the port forward.
