I was curious if there is someone to share your screen with another mac user. I have two friends that are always working on photoshop/illustrator projects together and they were wondering if they could work on it from their seperate homes and somehow get a view of the other persons screen/workspace to see what they are working on. Is this possible?

VNC, Apple Remote Desktop, Screen Mimic, Bosco, etc. There are a lot of options. Google "mac os x screen share".

I use remote desktop client on a local network - my G5 has no screen, keyboard or mouse, but it runs perfectly via my main machine.

I have duel screens, so I can run each machine on one screen and hop between them. Sweet . . .

Just a tip though - don't stop the remote desktop service on the headless machine from the one you're running it from It requires some swearing, and attaching a keyboard mouse and screen to get it running again.

Jonnyd,

Leave SSH sharing active on the headless mac. Then you can kick start it from the command line....

SSH into the headless mac. Then do:

$ sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/kickstart -activate -configure -access -on -restart -agent -privs -all

Thanks, I didn't think of that (not that I'd have known how to do it anyway). Hopefully next time I won't be so stupid though
