Vnc is great and simple for LAN/VPN. If you want to help people at home (possibly with VPN problems?) look into teamviewer, crossloop, logmein.

I use PC Anywhere 12.5 currently - works on 32 and 64 bit systems through Win7.  I also use Teamviewer when I can't get a VPN connection up (like when the problem IS the VPN).

I also work with a number of companies that use GoToAssist (Citrix)

I use Teamviewer at work. It is a onetime fee but works great even thru nat networks. I have several machines with the connection pre-configured for support.  RDP works but you need to know the ip.

VNC is secure because you got the two option.

1) Only internal remote support use. (LAN, VPN)

2) External remote support use ( Out side the network).
