Setup a VPN at home first, then tunnen VNC traffic through your VPN. * OpenVPN for Linux Servers and Windows clients: [www.howtoforge.com] * OpenVPN: [www.grc.com] * VPN Uses: [blog.jdpfu.com] * Running Remote Applications: [blog.jdpfu.com] (NX is more efficient than VNC or RDP - perhaps 10x more efficient). ssh tunnels work, but they aren't as efficient as UDP-based VPNs like OpenVPN. That's what LH needs - an OpenVPN Guide. As usual, there are many different ways to accomplish the same goal.

It's normally labeled something like Network Address, Physical Address, Locally Administered Address, etc. Wireless adapters are a little harder with Vista/Win7, but there are third-party programs that will do it for you. Routers can do this too, I think every home router I've seen has an option for it. As for your wireless, did you have multiple devices connected to the wireless?

Four little things that shaped India: Part 1 | The Kaipullai's Vetti Thoughts : The outer playground of my inner devil History books tell us that only events of tectonic magnitude, like say the Vasco Da Gama journey, shapes the history of the world. This post is not about events like that. This post is about some random little incidents from Indian history. Incidents, which are inconspicuous when viewed in isolation.

You configure your router to automatically assign IP addresses and the computers on your network just plain work. Port forwarding is useful because you can access your router from outside of your network and be redirected to the computer you need inside of your network.
