    Hello all,

    I am looking for a open source system/tool that will allow me to work remotely on a PC whether it's XP, Vista, Win7, or Mac OSX.
    Can anyone suggest a tool to use or where to look for one?
    thank you for your help and ideas. :)

    urie, do not take everything personally
    My remark was to the original poster, where "to work remotely on a PC" does NOT mean VPN

    TeamViewer is the way to go. Add it to the WIndows startup and done. It's one of the fastest client out there. You can use Real VNC but be aware lots of hackers target it and lots are successful.
