RealVNC Cloud Connect needs port 5900 open to work

I am trying to use RealVNC 6.1.x as a remote control application over the internet. The documentation is not very clear but from my experiments it seems like it needs port 5900 needs to be opened to the internet.

So RealVNC Cloud Connect is not similar to TeamViwer. This can be deal breaker in NAT (home configuration) or small office where only ports 80 and 443 are allowed.

How to apply RealVNC 6.x Enterprise license

On Windows 10 using RealVNC 6.x 64-bit, open cmd.exe in C:\Program Files\RealVNC\VNC Server, then type:

Microsoft Network Analyzer 1.4 WFP Callout Driver not installing on Windows 10 Creators Update

I was trying to install Microsoft Network Analyzer 1.4 but it failed installing one of the components on Windows 10 Creators Update. See for text and image capture below.

Program Compatibility Assistant 
A digitally signed driver is required 
Message Analyzer -- WFP Callout Driver

Windows blocked the installation of a digitally unsigned driver. Uninstall the program or device that uses the driver and check the publisher's website for a digitally signed version of the driver.

Is this expected? Will it work?
