VPN would be one way. Another way would be to set up your home computer for remote desktop as a terminal server and authenticate your work computer, then use the work computers remote desktop to access via internet.
There are apps that do this, as well as websites where you can d/l and install a client, but I'm not sure how secure either of them are.
If anyone knows of a website that can offer ColdFusion help that isn't controlled by neurotic, pedantic jerks* (stackoverflow.com), please PM me with a link.
