    I'm going off to college next week and because I'm the most tech-savvy in the family, my family always relies on me to help them with computer troubles. Now that I will be out of the house, it will be hard to guide them over the phone without getting a *little* impatient and maybe a little bit fustrated.

    Now I'm on a Mac running Snow Leopard and I would like to control 2 Windows Machines, so I was thinking the best way would probably be over a VNC connection.

    What is a good, and perhaps free VNC program that I can use to view the Windows computers running at home from my Mac. If this is not possible, I have Windows running on Boot Camp and can try a Windows alternative.

    The VNC program will need to be able to connect to machines outside my network (remotely, like house to college).

    I use Chicken-of-the-VNC. I've tried some of the others, but this seems to be the most responsive.

    Try CoRD or Microsofts RDC - both work just fine.
