How would I remote into my home PM over the internet from another location. I'm currently running WIn XP and have instslled Tight VNC software, but  I'm not really sure how to configure the VNC Client and VNC server. In addition, I currently have a wireless network set up in the home and run Norton Internet Security on the PC I want to remote to. How should I configure the port on the router.

Could someone please give me a step by step instruction on how to do this.

I would greatly appreciate the help.

Thanks.

First, setup a static ip on your pc.  Then configure port forwarding on the router to point vnc traffic (port 5900) to that static ip.  It runs on port 5900 by default, but it can be changed.  You also have to open up that port in Norton as well.  
Then, when you vnc from a remote location, you would enter in the public IP address of your router.  Hopefully, you have a static IP provided by your ISP.  It will work with dynamic, provided that you know what the IP is and can accept the fact that it can change.  If it does change, you won't be able to get to it unless you know the current ip.

I was able to configure the router. Not sure if its correct but what I did was under the "Port Range Forwarding" I gave it the application name(TightVNC), then I added the ports b/c it asks "start to end"  (ex. 5900 to 5900), protocol(I chose TCP but there was an option for UDP), ip address and selected enable.

Since I am home I cannot attempt to see if it works. Other than that I appreciate the information and will test it as soon as I am able.
