    realvnc only has clients for windows...
    VNCthing and OSXvnc are two programs you need to run it on the macs.

    Another App often dismissed (and not free) is Timbuktu. There's Mac and PC compatability.

    I can install it on all the other macs except my host! It quits half way through, and shows loads of problems in console...
    Help?!

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 17", 2.33 GHz Intel Core II Duo, GPS, 3GB RAM, 200GB HD
    ONE

    Is there a FREE, limited-user Remote Desktop included in OS 10.4? I only need to control one other Mac from mine.

    TWO

    With the $299 version, can I have the software installed on more than 10 clients, but control only 10 of them? Or do I have to uninstall the earlier clients to free up the licenses?


    Thanks!
