You could set up a secure FTP connection if it is for files.
It's called paranoia I'll also be truecrypting my entire system partition

Well i will not be able to do anything neither will you. Once you close the laptop next time it will prompt you for an HDD decryption password if you go into hibernate mode, so we are both screwed

I'm still confused as to what you are trying to achieve. Obviously you want whatever you do to be secure (encrypted) but do you to control your desktop from away or simply want to access your home network from away?

VPN, and VNC are two totally different things. With VNC you'd still need to setup a VPN or DDNS. (probably both) It would allow you to take control of home PC and do whatever with it. I actually don't believe this is that secure because you never really know who is at your house watching the screen.

If you just want access to files or other resources (printers) at your home network all you need is a virtual private network (VPN) yes this is encrypted as well.

You mentioned the bank analogy at starbucks. If this is all your worried about you don't really need either. Either way routing through an external network, to your home, to the banks network or going straight through an external network to the banks network your still using SSL and are encrypted.

Say your worried about someone capturing packets over the air. Connecting through your home network will not protect you any more than going straight to the banks network (or online store etc) while using SSL. It will just make things slower.

Just a few things to think about I think you really need to decide if you want to control your home PC (VNC) or not. Its really not that great considering the speed, and no graphical acceleration.

If that is what you say maybe i'm confused about what i want.

1. Access Internet at a starbucks and have everything encrypted.

My friend mentioned remote desktop that is how he accesses his 8 servers in another state.

What exackly is remote desktop and what do i need to accomplish it and is it encrypted?

My crazy networking friend is coming over tommorow and is going to set up remote desktop for me actually.
