Here is my set up: At home: Modem ---ethernet---> Airport Extreme ---ethernet---> Macbook (10.7.3) Back to my mac turned on in iCloud NAT port mapping turned on in Airport Utility for the Airport Extreme Macbook is plugged in and set to NEVER go to

Here is my set up:
At home:
Modem ---ethernet---> Airport Extreme ---ethernet---> Macbook (10.7.3)
Back to my mac turned on in iCloud
NAT port mapping turned on in Airport Utility for the Airport Extreme
Macbook is plugged in and set to NEVER go to sleep
Wake for network access is turned on
Screen sharing is turned on and set up for one user with a password
I've tested screen sharing on the local network with my wifes MacBookPro and it works
At work:
iMac also running 10.7.3 and connected to same icloud account
Finder set to show "Back to my mac" in "shared"
I can see my macbook in the shared section of finder on the imac and it shows "share screen" as an option, and not "connect."  I don't have anything other than "screen sharing" turned on in "sharing" settings on the macbook, so this is how it should look.  This looks exactly the same as when I tested it on the local network with the MBP.
However, when I click "share screen" I get connecting to "Jimbob's Mac" and rather than the usual prompt for a password, I get:
Connection failed to "Jimbob's Mac"
Please make sure that Screen Sharing (in the Sharing section of System Preferences) is enabled on the computer to which you are attempting to connect. Also make sure your network connection is working properly.
Any help or tips on what I need to reconfigure would be appreciated.
and for the record, my name is not actually Jimbob
