    Specs:
    '11 15.4, 2.2, 8gb MBP - '11 15.4, 2.0, 8gb MBP, 2x4gb Gen1 Nano, 8gb Gen3 Nano,
    connect via remote connection W7 to MBP
    I'm running both w7 desktop and a MBP into the same monitor, often on at the same time. I can switch inputs on the monitor to change for one to the other and I can connect remotely to the W7 box from the MBP using microsoft remote desktop.

    But I can't seem to go the other way. That is I want to connect to the MBP via remote desktop from the W7 box.

    Any suggestions? I can't seen to find my answer searching the web just yet.

    MBP is a 2011 15" and 10.6

    Use RealVNC from the Win7 PC.

    Be sure to enable it in the Sharing Preferences (remote management) on the Mac.

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
