Like it's been stated in the old thread, http://sourceforge.net is a great place to get Open Source software.

What is Open Source Software?

The basic idea behind open source is very simple: When programmers can read, redistribute, and modify the source code for a piece of software, the software evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing.

Windows XP has a simple, basic VPN already built-in using RRAS.
Do you need something more configurable?

Using XP Home for VPN server.

I did see the wizard for it, and did try to configure it, but I had a great deal of trouble configuring the passwords part. Thought I'd try freeware instead.

Can't get UltraVNC to work :( I opened up ports 5800 and 5900 (the ports UVNC uses) at my home computer, UVNC client on my shcool computer makes a connection, I see the desktop, but I can't do anything.The mouse arrow doesn't move, just stands still, I can't click anything. Back to Remote Desktop Connection for me.

Have you set the server to allow remote-control ? I believe that it's disabled by default.

the best Irc client i have used ;) http://www.hydrairc.com/ very fast to load + easy to use :cool:
Aren't they going to charge for it once it reaches v1.0 though? or are they going to change that?

I know that they got booted off sourceforge for not being truly open source..

Slapping a price tag on a free product is a major change ;) Surely they'll make the preference side of things more accessible. They may no charge for it after-all though, I guess we'll see.

X-Chat still owns it though ;)
