    What is your username and password on your mac? That is what it wants.

    You have no administrator password on your Mac? You should. I have never tried it from another location but here on my network that is what it's asking for and it works great.

    On your Mac at home do you have remote management checked in the Sharing? It's running Leopard correct?
