    i've got a sawtooth. 350mhz. i want to put it out of the way, hooked up to the router. and then be able to control it from the laptop.

    is there a way i can do this? i've heard of vpn, but i don't know what that is. i'm game to using a form of linux over panther, which is what's on the sawtooth already.

    this isn't a pressing concern, but if anyone has an idea, i'd appreciate it.

    Easy, VNC.

    If you don't know what VNC is, then have a google :)

    I don't know that it's quite as simple as that. You can do lots of fairly advanced things in ARD that you cannot do in any regular old VNC.

    You buy an ARD manager, or you can use a plain-jane VNC client to view your ARD server. So, essentially, everybody already has a VNC server installed on their system.
