I have used ultraVNC (http://www.ultravnc.com/) for exactly this task, and
it works pretty good.
I setup a listening client on my machine on port 80 and send the server part
to the client. The client then starts the server and tells the server to
connect to my host by right clicking the server tray icon and choose "Add
new client".
It is also possible to script the connection from the client so the remote
user only has to click one icon to make a connection to you.
