Nothing new here. I can even think of better ways to remotely access your files.

Cool article.

Some of it seems like a lot of work though. Or at least not straight forward.

I've been thinking about having access to my home computer for a while now when on the road.

it was an ok article, worth a book mark anyway.

I'm not doubting you or anything, but for the sake of the conversation, would you mind sharing?

I FTP and Secure FTP via SSH all the time. Much more secure and more of a standard. No additional software required on the client machine for FTP regardless of the OS.

While not as user-friendly for most consumers, it's as simple as checking "Enable remote login" and typing ssh username@ipaddress.

Oh yeah... My bad. Good point though. I'm a student so I guess its easier for me to get more space.

MAYBE YOU CAN HELP ME OUT.

People can spy on my mac...

I have had a 'friend' send me screen shots of my computers current activity as well as mock things I have said in conversations on facebook. (I believe he/they can even hear the audio I am currently listening to or playing. 'Believe' being the wrong word seeing that i know they can.)

Multiple people are in on this and all are viewing my computer on some sort of site...

I have known for quite sometime I am being spied on but haven't cared much until recently because it is starting to jeopardize my work.

Please help. Again, this is a factual.

Dude, you need to kill your IT associate now. How do you surf pRon?:p

edit: seriously, you should create a new admin account with a very secure password and restrict permissions to guest user on all other accounts. And don't let your friends use your mac when logged in as admin. ;)
