sorry about the double post.

It depends on what you want him to be able to do when he gets there. If you mean share files for instance, and do all the normal local networking stuff, then you need to set up a VPN tunnel between your machines. Nothing else required. In my work, I connect to remote machines for all different purposes, and different purposes require different techinques and software. So....what are you trying to do exactly?
