    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    VNC will work quite well, as long as you turn on Screen Sharing in the Sharing System Preference Pane.

    The info you've given us isn't all we need.
    Is the server/target Mac directly connected to the internet (have its own internet IP), or is it connected to a router, so it has a local IP address?
    Local IP addresses start with 192.168, or 10.0 or 172.

    If the Mac is connected through a router to a local IP address, you will need to open the port number for VNC - usually 5900 - on the router.
    In router manuals this is usually called Port Forwarding. You set this up in the router web admin pages - any requests to port 5900 will be sent to the local IP address that is set to receive them.
