    I don't really understand the question. But I use OSXVnc Server on my Mac and I use Real VNC as a client on my Windows laptop. I can connect to my Mac from anywhere in the world.

    I'm guessing you mean you want to control the PC from the Mac? Just put the standard VNC server on your PC and use a Mac VNC client like Chicken of the VNC. Or, if Remote Desktop can connect to it, use that.

    Same here. Except, my PC is at BestBuy for a free diagnostic test. Oh well, that just means I get to know my iBook better! YAY! :D :p :D

    Sorry for the long reply, gone from computer... on the new version of ARD - it says that it can control a PC from a Mac with ARD 2.2 if the PC has a VNC client enabled. I was wondering if anyone was doing this yet and what VNC client they where using on their PC.

    Mac ... controlling a PC is the goal

    Apple remote desktop says i can do it... so does apple :) just gotta find the right vnc for pc

    As I linked above, just get the RealVNC server from the official site. That'll work just fine.
