Hi!

Does anybody know if there's a Mac equivalent of the LogMeIn remote control software? I know there's VNC and others like it, but I'm hoping for some kind of service like LogMeIn or GoToMyPC that won't have me screwing around with firewalls...

If there isn't anything like it for OSX, how do you imagine it might perform under Parallels 3 in Coherence mode?

Thanks!

J

Chicken of the VNC <-- (link)

Chicken of the VNC is a VNC client for Mac OS X. A VNC client allows one to display and interact with a remote computer screen. In other words, you can use Chicken of the VNC to interact with a remote computer as though it's right next to you.

As far as firewalls go, that's something you need to take into account. The only way you won't have to worry about firewalls is if you disable them.

^ With OSX being the host? Or the client?

The need I had specifically was for OSX being the host. I always assumed that guest mode would work the same as on Windows given the LogMeIn Firefox extension.

Nice news about LogMeIn for the Mac... Interestingly enough, I didn't see anything about it on LMI's site.

Anyway, thanks for the replies!
