I'm working on a website for a charity organization. The site is almost complete and the board of directors would like to see how it's coming so I'm scheduled for a demo later in the month. The problem is that I can't put the site online yet and I can't demo it in Dreamweaver because it requires ASP in order to run properly.

At home I use an aluminum iMac (20" running Tiger) and I have Parallels installed so I can switch over to Xp, run IIS, and view the site from there. the problem is, I need to do this demo at someone elses house, using an Xp machine (Xp Home).

So what's the easiest way for me to demo this page? I've got a few ideas but I'm not sure...

Can I somehow setup my Mac so that I can connect remotely to it using a Windows machine? That would be ideal. Any other ideas?

One simple way to do it would be to use some type of remote desktop application to connect. I haven't tried the native support OS X has with it, but I know something like www.logmein.com would work. There's a free version that you can use, and you can connect from anywhere then to your box.

Wow, thanks Thyamine...LogMeIn is EXACTLY the type of thing I was looking for. I also be able to use this in the future when a distant relative calls and asks for "Computer Help".

Works great so far, nice find.

Exactly. Glad it helps. I use it for the same reasons. =)
