    I have a small network with 4 macs on a router with a static IP. I have port forward setup to use one machine as an FTP server. How would I go about accessing a specific Mac on my network (other than the server) using my PowerBook when I'm away from the office?

    Should be able to do the same thing with the ports VNC uses.

    Tiger Apple Remote Desktop will let you use a free VNC client (like Chicken-of-the-VNC). It's enabled in the Sharing System Preference Pane. Also, click on "Access Priv.", to enable remote VNC clients.

    I think the ports are 5800 & 5900...
