Easiest way is to 1) Use something that has encryption built-in, such as
Zebedee (includes a VNC-based app, but also encryption) or the "Enterprise"
version of RealVNC. 2) Set up some sort of Dynamic DNS account (dyndns.org,
ZoneEdit if you have your own domain name, or one of the other dynamic DNS
providers) and run their updater app all the time so you don't have to know
the IP address, just a machine name, i.e. mypc.dyndns.org or something like
that. Google for "dynamic dns" and you'll probably come up with at least a
dozen or so hits.

Subject: newbie question
I am a vnc newbie. Here's what I'd like to be able to do. My wife uses a
laptop, most often at home, connected wirelessly to the internet at home.
Occasionally she travels for business.
I'd like to have vncserver just running all the time on her laptop, so that
whenever I need to help her, on her windows xp home machine, I can launch
vncviewer on my linux machine at work and help.
I know that vnc works as i have had it working while at home between two
networked computers. One was wirelessly connected, the other wired, to the
same hub. When I connected there I was connecting to a discrete IP address
of the machine running vncserver. This machine is behind a firewall.
How do I set this all up so that 1) it is secure and 2) her laptop, which
will be running vncserver, will bear a name and addressing that I can
actually access across the internet?
