    I have a linksys router at my house with 3 computers on it. I can remote into all the computers within my network obviously since they are all 192.168.1.101-103. But now I'm at someone else house, how exactly can I connect to a specific computer thats running the VNC server?

    You would have to configure the router to forward the VNC port to whichever computer is running the VNC server, or configure that server to be on the DMZ - most likely you can only do this from one of the computers connected directly to the router.

    im kinda guessing here but you could probably forward certain ports to certain computers (ex port 100 to 101, 200 to 102, 300 to 103) and then connect to your external IP via VNC with that particular port if their is an option in VNC to do so. Or maybe that would only change the port on the client side... not sure. Anyone done this?
