Re: Can a Mini 9 do Remote Access? - 11-29-2008, 09:03 PM
Sure. Check out TeamViewer, which is free for personal use. You run this on your home PC and then connect to it from your Mini. I use this frequently to provide "tech support" to relatives.

Yeah, I use my Mini9 to remote control my main desktop machine all the time, I use the "Share Screen" feature built into OSX.. The funny thing is, it quite nicely resizes me 1440x1050 desktop to fit on the Mini's screen. Perfectly usable (usually just use it to tell the machine to shut down or something though).

The XP version also has Microsoft Terminal Services client built in. (start run "mstsc"). I'm also using Live Mesh (www.mesh.com) which allows you to control the machines you've added to your mesh.
