Wide Area Bonjour Network
Me and a few of my friends want to collaborate on a project and I was wondering if we could connect to each other using bonjour ?
We are all using a mac running leopard, but I can't find any easy way of doing it.

In short, there is no very easy way to configure Bonjour across subnets.
You'll have to setup some sort of mDNS Server where both computers can communicate with as a "Bonjour" server, like in Leopard Server's DNS server.
Or use something like iChat which uses online accounts.
Maybe something like Google Docs can help you out..?

Personally I'm not that clear on Network Beacon I just heard that people had used it previously.
I did once get a bonjour network going with hosts being able to connect from anywhere using OpenVPN on a third host.
I.e. Client Machine 1 -> VPN -> OpenVPN Host
And Client Machine 2 -> VPN -> OpenVPN Host
You must use a TAP based VPN (rather than a TUN network) as the multicast Bonjour packets are not forwarded by OpenVPN on a TUN network.
You should then configure the server mode to be 'server-bridge'. For example
server-bridge 192.168.5.1 255.255.255.0 192.168.5.30 192.168.5.40
This creates a VPN with 192.168.5.1 as the VPN server and each host joining the network gets an address in the 192.168.5.30-40 range.
Bonjour packets route fine over this network and I successfully used it to listen to my remote iTunes shares.
Every host you want to connect to the virtual bonjour network will need to join the VPN. I was using TunnelBlink to manage the VPN on the OS X clients.
