    Just go into your router and open up a port (port forwarding) there's a thread here in the forum on it.. little bit of searching and you'd find it (and it's universal)

    In System Prefs > Sharing.... turn on Remote Desktop.. in the advanced settings tick the box allowing VNC clients to connect... give it a password... There are full instructions here:

    Yep I just followed these instructions above, perfect. VNC for the Mac side is built into the Mac OSX system Prefs. You just need to go into Sharing in System Prefs. Turn on 'Screen Sharing' then click on 'Computer Settings' and tick the VNC check box and place a password.
    Worked perfectly after that.
    Thanks

    Ezra, What version of Mac OS X are you using?

    If you are using Leopard, it has VNC built in.

    If you are using Tiger, you need Chicken of the VNSea
