    Remote Desktop Mac to PC
    Hi Everyone,

    I am new to the Mac world. Does anyone know a program that will allow remote desktop.
    I have a PC desktop (the computer I want to access remotely) and a Mac Book 2.00.
    Can anyone direct me towards software and tutorials and let me know if they have personally succeeded in having a remote connection.

    Thanks,

    Lewis

    Free, very fast performance!

    Don't bother with the 2.0 beta - it's not quite ready for use yet.

    I used this free remote service from www.logmein.com

    It's Java based, and you just install a small applet on your Windows box. Go to LogMeIn.com and login, and you can add a list of remote PC's you want to access remotely.

    Being Java-based, it runs through your browser.

    punkrOxOr,
    RDC is 100x faster than logmein (which I use as a backup). On a LAN, RDC is near real-time.

    Ya unfortunatly you need to be running Windows XP Pro in order to run RDC. I only am running XP Home.

    On the PC side, there's a dedicated extension for Firefox that works far better than the basic Java applet. I don't know if the extension would work on the Mac's Firefox, but it'd be worth giving it a try, as you get a lot more functionality.

    LogMeIn is also available for the Mac.
