VNC To The Rescue (Again)

My father now has a domestic ADSL Internet connection at home. Some fiddling with SSH and route and he was reconfigured from dial-up to Ethernet & ADSL.

Using some neat tips from www.debian-administration.org, I used VNC over SSH to tweak his desktop, and show him some stuff. I use VNC at work too, it's cheaper than other products and cross platform.

VNC is so cool, it's a nice protocol, and what's really clever is that the different versions, on different platforms seem to cooperate quite well without any bad behaviour. It just works...
