    RE: vpn or what?
    VNC sounds like the best option for you, its free, pretty easy to setup. As woboyle says, you'll need to check the firewall issue but there are quite a few guides on opening ports on a firewall. If you're connecting to Windows machines then using RDP is another option, works very much like VNC and there are clients for Linux which allow you to connect to Windows (tsclient for example).
