    Hey, I wanted to know if there was a way to see my computer screen anywhere on my iPod touch. What I mean is, not just when I'm connected to the same WiFi network, but if I turned on my computer at home, then went to my friends house, connected to his WiFi, would I be able to connect to my computer, see the screen, and operate normally? Thanks!
    Another quick question, if I did that and was controlling my computer on my iPod when I was at my friends house, would it use his WiFi, or the WiFi at my house? Same goes for playing videos, would it play them off my computer?

    I recommend using Jaadu VNC or Jaadu RDP. Just go to their website and follow the instructions in the Support Tab.

    And you would obviously be using the WiFi wherever you are currently located at... um, did you really just ask that?

    That's not what I mean about the WiFi. I mean that if I loaded Firefox on my PC via my iPod and went to a ifans.com, would it use my home internet connection to load ifans.com or the internet connection I was currently at, since I'm just controlling my PC from somewhere else.

    You have to be on the same wifi in order to VNC control your computer
    As far as I'm aware.

    unless technology updated again.

    No, you can be somewhere else controlling your PC from another WiFi or using 3G as long as you set up port forwarding and you know your IP address.
