Hello ppl...My question is, is there any way to have access one mac through another mac.

Details - I have a 27" desktop, previously I owned the 20"(white) desktop, I gave the 20" to a family member with 5 kids. The parents know nothing about macs. I live in Delaware the 20" is in Philadelphia. Is there anyway I can monitor/control it from my 27"? What are my options, do I have to buy expensive software?
QUOTE Thanks

Yes you can

**** Disclaimer**** I am not pushing or endorsing Logmein with this post, I am simply offering one option that just happens to be logmein in order to accomplish this task at hand. ****End Disclaimer****

There is a wonderful application at

You will choose the free product as it gives you unlimited access to ONE system.

How to setup for your parents:

- you go to and create an account

- have your parents download the logmein client to their system and have them use YOUR information when logging into the logmein app. (this is a one time process, as the app will retain this forever unless changed by you)

- you then go to, sign in, and under your control panel you will see your parents system that you now have total control over.


While there are other ways to achieve your need, I like logmein as for one system it is free

QUOTE Thanks
