Hi name is Brody and i was wondering, well first ok i live in Baltimore and my mom lives in NY because i move to MD anyways i want to be able to connect from my computer from Baltimore to hers where she can see what im doing and if she has a problem with the computer i can fix it. I tried VNC or maybe im just doing it wrong but can anyone help me step by step or somthing to help me do this i dont kno what im doing wrong she has windows XP i have Vista. I sent her VNC and had her installed that told her how to over the phone but i dont kno if i am doing somthing wrong because its not letting me connect says time out or somthing. If anyone can help that will be great and thank you.

Brody

Take a look at TeamViewer, I use it for remote support regularly. The plus is that it requires no installation, and no configuration of routers or firewalls.

Go actually read the site. ;)

Your mom had a simple program that requires no installation, she just runs it from the desktop and then tells you the random key that has been assigned to allow you to connect. You can then establish a session to her computer.

If you want something that requires no intervention, I use UltraVNC for such purposes.
