(it's 1 am, and I'm really sleepy, but can I do this?)

I will be traveling overseas soon, I have a PowerBook and an Intel iMac, I want to be able to access some files from my PowerBook while I'm away, and at the same time, can I use the iSight in my iMac as a surveillance camera?

Unacceptable answer:
"use the search function, has been covered several times!"

Acceptable answer:
"go to bed, you obviously need some rest"

apple remote desktop will do it. can control really any aspect of your mac away from home.

you have to set up a dynamic dns name and do some port forwarding, otherwise...its pretty easy.
and with Apple Remote Desktop I can access my iMac from anywhere in the world?

yeah, in particular you need the ports forwarded, a relatively static IP address, and setup both machines for VNC. No need to shell out for ARD from Apple.

I am a newbie to the Mac. I got mine while attending Full sail University Online. I had it two months and It was stolen night before last. I need to know how to use the isight feature to find out where its at. I will need line by line directions if possible. I am just starting my Web design degree and I have yet to learn all the tech terms. So please bear with me. Thank you for any help you may be able to provide. :(

Kudos for reviving a 4 year old thread.
