A combo of to get contact, and VNC should work for you if you need access to the remote desktop, or secured shares to files and so on..

just to add to what mattisflone said...

to find out your public IP go to
you have to have some way to access the remote PC (VNC, remote desktop which is built into XP etc)
open the whole on the firewall for whichever method you access the PC  (VNC is port 5800-5900, remote desktop is 3389 etc)

it is a FREE service that works like gotomypc.  A small software agent is installed onto the computer you wish to connect to - that then connects up to logmein and you can login from any computer connected to the internet.

There is NO firewall configuration, or need to worry about IP address.


Free Tool: IP Lookup

Get more info about an IP address or domain name, such as organization, abuse contacts and geolocation.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Personal Favorite of mine is Remote Administrator 2.2

Provides alot of features alot of free remotes do not

Multiple connections
Drag and drop any files up to 2GB via Explorer-like interface to or from a remote computer in encrypted mode
And many other features..just click on the feature list when you goto the link above.

One pretty easy solution if you need to connect two computers that use dynamic IP addresses is to use Hamachi, which is an easy-to-use FREEware.  Hamachi sets up its own encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN) between two or more computers and is pretty user friendly.  It's other great feature is that it can be used to tunnel through most firewalls (Zonealarm needs to be set to medium vs. high for this to work in some cases) and NAT routers.  With this alone you can do file sharing.

Use the static IP addresses that Hamachi sets up and then use UltraVNC as a FREE gotomypc-like solution where you can actually view the other PC screen, etc.  This solution works great for me.   These are two robust programs, but you may need to tweak UltraVNC a bit to get it set up the way you like it.
Another comment about file sharing with Hamachi:  In Windows you will have set the appropriate folders to be shareable.  For example, in Windows XP, click on My Computer, select a drive, select a folder, right-click on it, select "Sharing and Security".  Then set up the sharing the way you want it.

Other comment about UltraVNC:  If you don't want to set up file sharing with Hamachi, UltraVNC has a built-in file transfer utility.
