    There are mixed reports. However from what i've read in the main people are having real problems getting it to work.

    Working well here (I must say I'm surprised/impressed!)

    I'm able to see my 'Back To Mac'-enabled Mac Mini at home (which is behind an Airport router) from here at work on my MacBook Pro.

    Very handy :)

    Displaced- All you did was click the "start" button on Back to my Mac in the .Mac system preferences, and that's it? Right?

    That's right. Turned it on on both my Mac Mini and the MacBook Pro.

    The Mini now still shows under 'Shared' in Finder, even when not on the same LAN as the Mini.

    Clicking my Mac Mini in Shared behaves identically to connecting when on the LAN at home albeit a little slower (obviously due to the internet connection being involved). However, the Screen Sharing button is absent - I kinda expected that still to be there :)

    Not working for me.

    Both setup correctly, no firewalls.... It's too bad, but every new feature I experiment with makes me realize that Leopard wasn't yet ready for release.
