The school network is a system wide network with a pretty draconian
firewall.  My desktop machine is connected to the systemwide network through
a gateway on campus.  A wireless router is connected to the same gateway,
and a pc in my room can connect by dhcp to the network through the wireless
router.  I am uncertain what firewall is enabled or not in the linksys
wireless router.  An internal IP number is assigned by dhcp to the laptop.
A network address on the school network (also private, but wider ranging) is
assigned to the desktop.  I want to control the second PC from the desktop.
I'm unsure how to go about it.  I thought about DynDNS.

Thanks for any ideas.


PS.  I apologize for asking two questions in one message, and hope it does
not cause confusion.
