    No problem. Which router are you using, how many computers are in the network and what is the configuration you're trying to setup?

    Ok heres the full story. I work for a local ballet company and help them with there computers. Sometimes though being lazy over takes my motivation. So i got the great idea of doing things remotly. Heres there set up and then i will tell u wut i have tried. They have sbc dsl which goes into a WRV54g linksys router(very nice router if i do say not bad at all) and from there through one of the rosuter ports it goes into a linksys switch and out to the 7 or so ethernet wall jacks. They have 7 computers i am pretty sure hard cabled. I have gotten tight vnc to work when i am there on the network it self great put the comp in listen mode and then go to my laptop type the local ip and i have control its great simple and it works. SO i tried to take it to the next step and connect from the outside and that is not going so good. i would like to use tight vnc but there support frankly sucks. and a virtual provate network looked good because the router itself has a thing for VPN and i think i have it set up right but idk. basically i want to get control of any of the desktops on the network. any help or suggestions at this piotn would be greatly appreciated. Critism is good to. anything.

    Since you're a noovice at this, I'd recommend just using the Windows Network Setup Wizard on each computer. Just assign the same workgroup to all of them. This sets them up in a "peer-to-peer" network. All that simply means is no one computer has authority over any other.

    Repost if you have questions about setting this up.
