    Use RealVNC or UltraVNC or TightVNC.

    Macs have built in VNC servers that can be configured in the Sharing system preference.

    x86 vnc products do not work with Leopard screen sharing feature so be sure to use the remote management option instead.

    Also port forwarding your router if applicable.

    Thank you very much. The MAC OS version that I have is 10.4.11 and the other one is Windows XP Pro SP2.
    I try to download the software but it does not give all the options. Any other suggestion or an specific software that you've tried before?

    log me in
    Not sure if it's exactly what you're looking for but i use Log Me In. It has its limitations but overall I think it is a rather good piece of software and there's a free version. [URL="https://secure.logmein.com/home.asp"]

    I use RealVNC to connect to 10.4.X. All you need is the viewer executable.

    Just enter the IP of your Mac and the the password you specified in the Macs remote management settings.

    Again if this is going to be an over the internet thing, port forwarding will need to be done.
