I thought a VPN was just a network connection.

Essentially, yes. It'll allow you to connect to your home computer from anywhere, securely, as though you were physically on the same network as it using and Remote Desktop. The "official" definintion of a VPN is a private network that uses a public network to link remote networks or users.

Well, I'll be a little less helpful to you here... I have never worked with a VPN in Vista, and couldn't even tell you where to start. However, I believe Vista still includes a VPN client and VPN server so the Windows help files should be able to give you info.

VPN uses "intenet tunneling" to establish a connection to your PC\\Server\\Network and uses encryption to keep traffic secure. VPN has nothing to do with a network connection as it can be ran across dial up . It's a Virtual Private Network, or in other words a "gateway" into a private network from outside of the network.

All you'd need to do is setup and configure the VPN server (or download one that's easier to use than the windows one) on your PC, port foreward VPN ports on your router to your PC, and then use a client to connect to your PC. Really not complicated and you should easily be able to set it up just messing with it, or using the built in help features

How exactly do i do the port forwarding? Ive got a server set up on the pc im on now, but i need to know what address i have to type in on the other end. The host is behind a simple modem/router combo.

NX, more efficient then VLC and sets up secure connections be default I believe.
You can get everything from NoMachine.com

Or use a VPN or tunnel it via SSH.
