    Ok. I installed Leopard on my work G5, and also installed it on my home MBP (two separate copies).

    I enabled "Back to my Mac" on the work computer, but now that I am home I can not see it. I enabled all but the most RIDICULOUS sharing options (seriously, an unsecured http address? That's crazy).

    Why can't I see my work laptop at home? I am pretty sure that port 5900 is not being forwarded. Is that the cause of my problem? Any thoughts appreciated.

    At the moment it seems that you need to have UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) enabled on your router to allow access to your Mac

    What those ports are I don't no

    I'd much rather port forward then let the router do it itself but it seems for the moment the ports haven't been disclosed yet.
