Hello, So yer I have a beefy HTPC at home which I also use as my download box as its silent/passive/low power. Having no time at home to extract/repair all the blu rays off usenet etc I really need access to it remotely so that I can ensure Im always getting the most out of it. Im using Real VNC 64bit on Vista and its working well (except Vista Media Centre shows as a black screen). I have it set up with default security settings but running on a random port for connections and not using the windows password and using a standalone non-dictionary number/word password. I have a linksys wired router forwarding this random port to the HTPC. Is this safe enough or am I wide open to massive security issues? I'm not bothered if its not super bank grade secure, as nothing is. Just as long as its not blatantly asking to be hacked to pieces! Thanks, Dean.
