Default Remote working

Hi all
Has anyone any experience of how well I can control pro tools via some sort of remote desk top / VPN / IP based communication. Ideally from my Pc at home and the Pt is on a mac at work.
Any necessary intermediary software or experience is much appreciated.

All current mac systems have a VNC server already built in.

system preferences > sharing > screen sharing > computer settings
(in 10.6)

then you just need a VNC client:

which you should be able to get for free.

my favourite is

but that's not for pc.

you need to test your connection with the two computers on the same LAN.

then you need to work out how to forward this connection over the internet which is not fun and boring to talk about here.
