Open up your router page (usually 192.168.1.1 in the address bar). Find port-forwarding, then set up port forwarding for port 5900 (assuming you're using VNC). Simple as that.

And I would also vouch for VNC. Great software, it's free (as long as you don't need encryption).

If you're connecting to a school, they should have a static IP... I'm guessing they have a T1 line? So you may not need to use a DynamicDNS service. Still, it's handy just so you don't have to remember an IP address...

have you ever used logmein? i mean i know your a network guru but this is for simple every day use...

they charge you for pro but if you use their free service for a certain amount of time they send you special offers

pro has benefits like file sharing and such visit the site for more info

you will have to install a little program onto the computer your going to access but it doesn't take that much memory or resources very small and convenient

btw i use this to control my business computer from home incase something goes wrong and i can usually always depend on it.

(you have to have an active internet connection on the computer that you want to control and it has to be ON)
logmein ftw

Ad Hoc is the type of network used to directly connect 2 PC's together (wireless or wirelessly). If you put both PC's into Ad Hoc mode, and assign them IP's, they should then be able to connect to one another.

It's a computer-to-computer network connection without using a router or switch or access point. Only works with two computers.

I know that using a program, to automate something that's already simple to setup, the secrectly installs itself, and spams adds on my screen is junk... does that answer your question?

Go to google, download UltraVNC (my perference, you could try a different version such as tight, but some versions are pay). Install the "Server" side of it on the PC you want to be able to connect to. Setup a login and password. Now install the "client" side of the softare on the PC you'll be using to login to your home PC. Spike covered setting up the router pretty well. If you want to use DynDNS they have very good directions on their site. If you want more detailed help i'd be glad to help, just try to ask a detailed question

Definitely using Ultra VNC server side on this laptop, BUT, on many of the computers I want to access this laptop on, we are not permitted to install software. Is there a way I can install it to a flash drive?

I know I'm not exactly a genious, but where is the link to the download for the server client at the site?
