    Are you talking via the same network or the internet? Pretty easy on the same network, but it might get a bit more tricky through the internet, and you'd be open to hackers, etc (the PC mainly )

    Best deal for remote connection and file sharing is Team Viewer - iChat is good but some features in Team Viewer are better and in the case of PC to Mac Team Viewer is the choice.
