If you have XP Pro/Win Vista Business/Win 7 Business or higher then you can use remote desktop if you open up port 3389 to your workstation and enable remote access. If you have XP home the you can use VNC through port 5900. A remote VPN access would require a static IP and some VERY advanced network knowledge and setup. If you wanna chat on the phone I can give you some pointers (630)-627-7623 - Ask for Rob.


P.S, if all else fails then just use :)
