I’m using VPN to log into my work network, and since the network is too slow by remote, I just used VNC to remote-control one of the computers there to do my actual “work” on. It’s actually quite fast – since only very small amounts of information (just screen updates) have to tunnel through the VPN to get to my computer. All of the work (files & whatnot) is still “local.”
Pretty cool, eh?
