I could use some help with this. I want to be able to access my computer from another computer wherever I may happen to be. What will I need to do? I have an account set up with dyndns.org and opened up my router, everything looks good, do I need to set up a webserver or start any services in order to gain access to my computer?

All dyndns does is creates a static DNS that redirects to your dynamic IP. You'll need a service like Remote Desktop to access your computer, but that's assuming your running XP Pro or XP MCE. Otherwise, you could do what i usually do - and run a VNC server instead. All you'd have to do is forward ports 5800 and 5900(Java access port if you use the java server with RealVNC, and the default port for connections with a VNC client)

If you really wanted to, you could install a sshd + cygwin to have command line, but that's going overboard.
