I have been using successfully Team Viewer to do some basic assistance to one of my relations computers. As other family members have come on board, I feel that I can no longer rely on TeamViewer. I have been introduced to UltraVNC and have seen it in action, it looks just the part. The question is how do I set it up? I have downloaded the server and viewer, and could do the same to the other laptop. We are both behind NAT routers.

Here you will find the basics about installing UltraVNC.

The main goal is difference between server and viewer. You need server running on every computer that you need to control. With the viewer you conect to remote computers by selecting either name or IP address of computer (with server installed and running) in your LAN. Every version of VNC software comunicate through port 5900, so this port should be open in firewall.

If you want to gain access to your LAN computers from the Internet, the settings are slightly different, but I can explain you if you wan't.

I think this is exactly the information I am looking for. I will attempt to set this up in my home netwok, then if you can assist, can I drop you a line if I have issues connecting to a PC through the Internet.
The earliest I will be able to test this will be this weekend.

My thanks for the info. Will be in touch.
