Testing setup

I want to do some telecommuting from a different city.

I will be using a Windows PC running XP SP2 and probably UltraVNC or TightVNC as the viewer software.

I will be using Vine Server for OSX on my Mac Pro which is running Tiger.

My wife has a PC running next to me & we are on a Linksys WRT54G router.

Can I install the software on my Mac & the PC and actually test the setup even though the two computers are on the same network? Or do I have to actually install the PC software & test it through a different Internet connection?

Does anyone have a preference for the viewer UltraVNC or TightVNC?

Thanks for the help.

    To properly test the setup your wife will probably need to connect with your EXTERNAL network address (and even that isn't 100% foolproof).

    Personally I think both UltraVNC and TightVNC are fine products; Ultra has been a little more active recently, but either should work well.
