    I am hoping to control mac's remotely, but don't have the money to spend for apple's software.

    anyone know of alternatives?

    Thanks!

    If you use VNC, be sure to learn how to tunnel it over SSH - that makes for a much more secure system.

    VNC all the way. Just download the free version here.

    It's a rather foolproof way to go. There are other alternatives out there, but I don't know if any of them are free.

    thanks for the help.

    i'm running them now, but can't figure out how to remotely control one machine from the other.

    or maybe this function is not part of this ?

    thanks!
