Default Remote VNC

im trying to get 2 computers to remotely vnc one another, while not being in the same LAN. I was reading that to access remote vnc's, you must enable port forwarding. Basically, i wanna control a computer a state away, something of that nature. can anyone help me? PLEASE

Thanks!

wow havent seen raffaz in a while
yea logmein is good, doesnt need any messing about with port forwarding. simply requires the program on both pc's, pretty much the same kind of thing as any vnc program

Port forwarding isn't that hard.
Check out this site: http://portforward.com/ it has guides on how to set it up for different routers.

I would recommend using tightvnc. This is a great program and is a breeze to set up.

Check out this article. For help on setting it up.

Cheers!
