    Specs:
    MacBook Pro | iMac(2.1 G5) | MacBook(2.16 C2D) | MacMini (1.67 CD) | iPhone 4 | iPad (3rd Gen)
    Goto System Preferences > Sharing and activate windows sharing. Then you should be able to access designated folder from your Mac.

    RealVNC.com, you'll need to download the server software for you OS X machine and the client software for your Windows machine. It works great!
