I'd like to access my office imac from home.  Our computers are on an ethernet network, and I know how to access the server, but I'd like to move through the server to my computer.

If your office computer is on its own network and doesnt have a real IP address then youre going to be out of luck unless the office computer initiates the connection. If however your office mac has a real IP address that actually exists on the internet (anything other than 192.168.0.x or 10.0.0.x) then you have lots of options. You could for example use Timbuktu from http://www.netopia.com/software/tb2/2000/ which is a marvelous utility. It will pop up a window on your home mac of exactly whats on your office mac. If someone is sitting at the office watching your mac they will see you move the mouse around, move icons etc. Its total remote control...very cool. Unfortunately, again, if youre office mac is on a closed network then youre out of luck.

This of course assumes that your office server has an external connection to the internet at all. If it doesnt then you certainly wont be able to do anything at all.
