I’m writing this blog entry on my Wife’s PC upstairs. Sort of. I’m actually sitting in an office in downtown Ann Arbor, remotely controlling the upstairs PC from my powerbook. I’m using a combination of Secure Shell, port forwarding, and VNC.
All of which seems a bit like overkill just to let me play Civ while at work.
Seriously though, this is very cool. I’m going to be working more with the security behind this and figuring out what all needs to be done to set this up to do remote troubleshooting.
By the way, if you’re fiddling about any with Unix, I strongly recommend the “ssh tips” articles at afp548.com.
