I have no opinion on remote control or VNC, but I find it strange how
you formulated your subject line vs the question(s) you asked in the
posting itself.

No. Just don't use the default ports, pick two random ones (that
are not in use or reserved). You'll need to fiddle with
port-forwarding in your router, if you don't know what that is
don't use VNC.

On the LAN, Windows Remote Desktop.

LogMeIn or Team Viewer (have both installed) for accessing them
outside of my network (from the Internet). I really need to
switch to Hamachi for a VPN solution instead but have not gotten
around to it.
