Remote monitor/control windows from a mac

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I don't know exactly where to put this, but anyway:

Often times I wanna checkup on my sig rig while I'm at school or just not at home. My laptop is a mac, so my question is how to setup my laptop and desktop together so I can remotely monitor my desktop using the internet. Remote control could also work, but monitoring is really all I care about for now.

setup a VNC server client on the rig you want to monitor, and download a Mac VNC viewer when you want to log in, control, etc...

Just forward ports on your router connected to main machine and boom! Controllable from any machine that has VNC Viewer, providing you know the WAN IP of your router, so you can connect to internal (behind router) PC

yes.


just make sure when you sety it up it is for personal use and not for comercial use.



then setup a perminant pasword and then save it. and then remember the password and log in key and boom.

you are done


the nice thing with TV is, it is supported on mac , iphone, android and windows. so if you got one of those smart phones then you can even do it from there.
