I want to control my pc, i have used realvnc, i hope it is a safe program .
I want to connect one of my pc's to control others computers in my network and from other pc's on the internet.
Also i want to conect my pc connected to a outside internet connection from mine and control my pc's in my Network.

How or what do i type to access these computers, int he ip field.

I am using a cheap laptop and because it is hard to move around with my knee operation and it is hard to walk to my study where my computers are, i have to use this laptop.

Or, to be slightly more useful: you have two main options.

1) VNC. I'd personally recommend UltraVNC - unlike most other VNC solutions, it has an encryption module available for it by default (although not necessarily enabled by default). Just run the server as a system service on whatever machines you want to be able to access, or else create a customised SingleClick module that your clients will run manually to allow you to connect - the benefit of this method is that it doesn't require a port being forwarded. If you're using other unencrypted VNC, anybody could sniff your passwords; you could always try tunneling through SSH (it's what I do; I also use SSH to start the VNC/FTP/HTTP servers whenever they're needed), but that's maybe a bit overly complex.

2) A far easier, more user-friendly, portable, and also encrypted method is another which I've also used: LogMeIn. Just install the app on the target computer and you can access it from any other computer with the appropriate browser plug-in installed. Highly recommended.

3) If you're confident about your network security and have done some reading, you could consider tunneling Microsoft's Remote Desktop from machine to machine, but given the amount of 'hackers' and skript kiddies targetting Microsoft products, that's probably best left as a last option.

I have about 50 clients hooked up with http://www.logmein.com

I would give this a try over some of the others just for a simple way to work with other pc's in a LAN or WAN
