GoToMyPC saves the day!
Who needs a VPN (virtual private network) when you can simply use GoToMyPC? This service (along with others that are like it such as LogMeIn) provides a very easy way to set up remote desktop access to your computer at work. You don't need to worry about any firewall settings. No routers to configure. You simply install GoToMyPC and then you leave that computer on. Simple!
I admit that I haven't tried many other remote access programs out there. I've used the "remote desktop" that comes with Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7.
Personally, I hardly ever need remote access since I have so many mobile computers and I keep all my files on the cloud (I'm a huge fan of cloud computing) with back ups on my local drives.
