generally tunneling is not so simple but this way it is, so dont be afraid
of it ;) the problem why you cant reach A (your desired pc at work) from B
(your laptop) is that all your office computers (including A) are behind a
thing called router. its only purpose is to direct data from your office
into the internet and vice versa + it holds a public IP (thats a number
which lets other computers in the internet find their way to it), which
means that its genuinely public = everyone can see it, whereas your office
computers dont have such public IP = noone can see them from the internet,
including you and B (your laptop). which is precisely your problem. now you
need something that will let you get to A. that something is hamachi and the
principle is called udp tunneling ..
basically it goes like this: you install hamachi on A and on B (laptop). i
assume you have vnc already properly installed as you said you've been using
it.. now just follow what hamachi tells you when you launch it the first
time (creating your own network on hamachi and joining it with both A and B
computer). now you will see that hamachi assigned you a "new IP" called
"hamachi IP" which looks rather odd, usually starting with something like
5.3. etc (might differ by the growing number of hamachi users..). you will
use this computer A's hamachi IP to connect from your B computer. hope this
