I don't know whether this will help, but in case it does:

I do it the other way around: I can control my son's Windoze 7 PC (in his 
bedroom upstairs) when he needs something sorted out, from my Linux 
laptop using TightVNC as the server on my son's box and Remmina as the 
client on mine.

TightVNC viewer works too, but I preferred Remmina. Quality and 
performance are fine. The link is wireless (we share a common wireless 
router). We both have static IP addresses on the home LAN.
