I have a friend that uses remote administrator to access his home machine. It looks pretty good. besure that both computers are connected to the internet first. go to http://www.cnet.com to do a search for it.

You will need a 3rd party software, you will set up the pc at home to be a host, you can dial into it or use the ip, setup a client in the computer in your office, you should be able to connect.

Use PCAnywhere. Install it at home and leave it enabled fo incoming calls. You can enable security features to protect it from unwated intruders. Run WINIPCFG, copy your IP address and then install the software at work, and connect to it by IP address. Make sure you have access to the IP address through your firewall. Your Admin may have the ports blocked.

You're pretty much dead in the water without 3rd party software. Here's the reason why: If you have a static IP address at home, the only way you can connect from work is to go through a DNS server. This means that your ISP would have to register your IP address with their DNS server/s. Will they do that? Not a chance. The reason why is because if they register your IP address with their DNS servers, this would, in effect, allow you to host your own website. Are they (your ISP)going to let you do that for free? I don't think so. Assuming for a moment that your IP address is registered, you would have to configure your machine at work to use your ISP,s DNS server to resolve addresses.
