Forum Question: Easiest way to access Mac remotely.

What is the easiest way to access my office Mac with another Mac when I’m out of town? I’ve read about “Screen Sharing” and watched your tutorial on it & seems like that might be the easiest way but wanted to ask. I’m using software version 10.6.6.
Thanks!

    Screen sharing is a great feature. I use it all the time. Give it a try at least and see what you think.

    Gary,
    I’m not able to get Screen Sharing to work. I’ve activated Screen Sharing in both the host and remote computers and typed in their respective URLs but to no avail. I’ve even had the two MacBook Pros sitting along side each other and still can’t get them to make the initial hookup. I’m baffled.
    Any thoughts?
    Thank you,
    Bob

      Hard to tell without being there. Are you sure you are using the right IP addresses and nothing on the router is blocking them? Can they see each other with regular file sharing?

    I’m sure the IP addys are correct as I’ve double checked them. I’ll take another look at the router to be sure and let you know.
    Thanks!
    Bob
