I highly recommend Timbuktu. It's not free, but it has the most history out of all the VNC apps, and their support is top-ntch. Not to mention, it;s the easieest VNC setup I've ever done.

Plus, it's completely integrated with Skype. All you need to do is setup Skype on your client and server systems and Skype/Timbuktu will handle all the traffic. It will even tunnel through firewalls. All you do is open your Timbuktu software and click the Skype will import all your Skype contacts and allow you to place calls to any of them.

The ones with Timbuktu active, will automatically setup a VNC session.provided your server accepts/you have priveleges. Connections through Skype/any extranet, run at typical VNC speeds. Howeever, if your server/client are on the same intranet, the session will be almost as fast as if you were using physically accessing the machine. (I used to use it to run my desktop PC from my Powerbook. I could do complex auto-rotoscoping with specialized, Windows-only software on my underpowered, unsupported Mac laptop.from my sofa.).

(The only real issue I have ever had with the program was because a Windows user was already logged into their system when I tried to create a session.the innability to connect was probably due to Windows' inherit instabilities.and it's failure to load the drivers due to those instabilities. After a fresh reboot, the problem cleared itself up.You get the was Windows' fault, not Timbuktu's.).
