I wanted to be able to do the same thing, i.e. control a windows 
computer remote from a Mac, but ended up with a different 
configuration:

Mac OS X (at home)
VNCThing (remote control client)
VPN on Linksys Firewall/Router (home)

connected to

VPN on Linksys Firewall/Router (office)
VNC Windows Server
Windows 2000
