What are some things that I can do to make remote desktop as safe as possible while using a service like TZO. I want to be able to access my computer from anywhere in the world so that means anyone else can too. Is my connection as safe as the strength as my password or are there some things I need to fix up to make my connection more secure? I am using a linksys wrt54gl router with norton360 firewall. What are some settings in there I can change in those to make my system more secure?

to add an extra layer of security you can use a vpn (setup in windows or swap to a vpn modem/router), also change the default tcp listen port that is used by remote desktop to something else works pretty well.

If you are going to be away for a while id get a decent ups and go into the bios and make sure the power state after powerloss is always on.
