Open VPN is a good utility. Do you HAVE to VPN or can you remote on to the laptop? Logmein will do that as well.

Windows VPN isn't half bad either.

It don't have to be VPN. I've used log me in but it was laggy(with good connections on both sides) but that was the free one. Would the pro version be better?

As per open VPN, would you rate that better than himachi?

Thanks for your help

Logemin Hamachi does work for your situation and works pretty reliability once you learn its quirks, in my experience. TeamVeiwer still has free remote control program that also (and why I am mentioning it her) provides a VPN connection option during a remote session. Logmein has dropped their free remote control service, and now wants everyone to subscribe. I haven't used Team Viewer VPN enough to say anything about it.
