sure with vpn and remote desktop/teamviewer/just about any vnc client that is easy to do

Thank you for your reply. Is vpn/remote desktop similar to 'logmein'? Here's the situation...in NM we have a security system which we can monitor remotely. What keeps happening is the router that is shared with the securuty system and the Mac will shut down after a few weeks of monitoring. The security co suggested putting the router on a simple timer like you would use for a lamp and set it up to reboot (go off/thenback on) once a day. Tried experimenting with this while we were at the NM house, but what happens is that when the router goes off and comes back on...the computer needs to be restarted. Obviuosly i can't do that if this happens when I am in KY. My experience with 'logmein' is that the computer which is set up with the logmein account needs to be on in order to remotely log in. So if the NM comoputer had the account and I would remotely log into it while in KY...I wouldn't be able to if the computer was shut down.
Does that make sense?

VPN is not necessary, I do this all the time just using Sharing. However to set it up both machines initially have to be on the same network.

Is it possible to have the same network in two different states?

Using VPN, you would have to make a one time trip so both machines are on the same LAN. Once the connection is made you can separate them and they should be able to locate one another. AFAIK it's only the setup that's a hassle.
