I've tried both VNC and Tight VNC but I couldn't figure out how to get it to work. I currently use logmein and its ok, but I was hoping for somthing better.

vnc is pretty simple..you install the server on the machine you want to controll and set a password...then you install the viewer on the remote computer...as long as they have a connection (on the same network or connected via vpn, or using port forwarding...whatever)...then you just pull up the viewer...type in the ip or computer name...and you're on y our way...the new version of tight vnc allows for file transfer and stuff like that..so it's pretty nifty
