VNC or .......

by mactrekr In reply to remote connection

There are numerous "free" and paid solutions to your problem. "Logmein" has a very nice, easy to use free remote desktop program. However, depending on your ISP, you should be able to have them do a direct IP passthrough to your own personal router. At that point you could use DDNS or even create a VPN to the office (Depending on what level of access you had to the office infrastructure). I've set up numerous VPN type systems for folks who want access to the office from home. Look into a free logmein accout ( It'll probably be the easiest solution for you.

so it seems you'll probably need to use a service like GoToMyPC.

So if you're stuck with a router that has no DDNS support, like the uVerse one I've got, you just load up the service on a PC, and it works the same way.

Call your ISP

by mactrekr In reply to remote desktop

First off, IMHO, nobody should leave their network security strictly to their ISP. One unscruplous employee and your life could be ruined if you store any financial or personal info. Every DSL provider I've ever worked with will do an IP passthrough if you request. Basically, you should go buy a descent home based router that will do DDNS and talk to your ISP. Or, if you just want to access the remote desktop, look at They have a free remote desktop program that works very well.
