Me:  Mom, what's is your IP?

Vino was designed such that you don't normally need to have that conversation, though-- the remote user should only have to open the vino capplet, at which point they can send you an email with all the info you need to connect by clicking on the link in the dialog. That feature does of course require that the remote user's machine be reachable from yours, though, which may not be the case in ISP-land, or if lack of network connectivity is the problem they're trying to solve in the first place :)
