Access Any Website Or Forum Without Registering Visit any forum or website to find something useful and they will ask you to register. Every time a forum asks me to register, I simply close the site.

Know Your Network, Lesson 4: Access Your Home Computers from Anywhere LH is often about how to get things done quickly, not how to do it securely. Sometimes there's a difference, but I agree, in this case running VNC outside any sort of tunnel is a BAD IDEA. Allowing unencrypted VNC access from the internet is a noob mistake. Gee Mom, look what I did! 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.
