I'm at work and I want to connect to a Mac at home to run a VNC session. I've used Chicken VNC at home, connecting one computer on my home network to another but haven't done it from a remote location.
I figure I have to forward a port on my firewall to the host computer. I can probably figure it out but if someone can give me a leg up, I'd appreciate it.
If you have an AirPort acting as a router and MobileME, you can enter your MobileMe information in the Airport Configuration and that computer will appear in the finder of any other may on the inter that is configured for your MobileMe account. Screen Sharing and file sharing both work.

FWIW, After trying many solution (successfully), I found "logmein.com", which free account allows me doing just that: connect to my Mac at home, remotely from work. Just one install on the Mac, no configuration (I have a modem + router), and all happens from a web browser from work, so nothing to install there either.
