How do I get Remote Desktop to work over the Internet?

Asked by bwallum on 2008-10-11

I want to support friends using Ubuntu for the first time by using the Remote Desktop feature. I can do this over a LAN at the moment. I now want to do it over the Internet so that I can support my sister some 500 miles away. I am using vinagre for the LAN based Remote Desktop.
