    Are you looking for VNC-style remote desktop, using the iPhone as a mouse/keyboard, or a customized remote for specific apps?

    I use TightVNC on the PC and iSSH on the phone. The Mocha server broke the video driver on the Win 7/64b PC. I was using iSSH to shell into a couple of remote servers anyway, so it was just a matter of configuring it for VNC.

    I'm looking for a VNC "type" application that will Only control a specific window like Firefox... Is there any thing like that out there?

    QFT!!!

    Easiest to setup & easiest to use. Works fast too. :D

    I also wanted to give Jaadu a try but my Linksys WRT54G router didn't have the enable UPnP option in it's settings and I didn't want to install a 3rd party firmware just for that option.

    NTRconnect is pretty good too.

    Have a look at PC Monitor mobilepcmonitor.com - no remote but you can use the native device interface to quickly monitor and manage all your computers.

    Teamviewer is free for non-commericial use. So that.

    I have tried almost all vnc/vpn/rdp apps, and the best one for me is "WinAdmin", works with nataive rdp protocol and ts the fastets of all of them.
