Is it possible to connect to a remote host that isn't directly connected to the internet?
The "remote host" is my work computer which I would like (if possible) to control from my home computer using WinVnC for example. My work computer is plugged into a hub which is then connected to the router which connects the system to the internet.

So providing I know the IP address of our internet connection, and the IP address of my work computer on the network is there any way that I can connect to it? (its running XP home)

This is not unlike the way I connect using PC Anywhere. I think you need to be able to port forward the incoming connection into your office to the right IP/machine.

You need to setup port forwarding on the router that your work PC is behind. Double check that you are allowed to do that though, most office IT people don't want ports opened.
