How to securely control another Mac over the internet
Authored by: phatmatt on Jun 15, '05 07:05:41PM

If the "Dad" computer is behind a physical firewall (router) it doesn't really matter if the VNC software is opening up ports in the software since they won't propagate to the router.

That said, I like OSXvnc because I seem to crash the apple version fairly regularly. It can be restarted through ssh (if the ports are open) but that's annoying.
