When configuring my remote desktop preferences, it says that my machine is only viewable to the local network... Does this mean that I can't SSH into it from the outside and if so, how do I fix is so that I can....

Do you have port-forwarding set up on your router?

You can ssh into it (and create a tunnel for port 5900) then connect to it via 127.0.0.1:5900.

Opening VNC to the internet is a bad idea, even if you set it up so that you have to allow the connection attempt.
