Hey guys,

Basically, I like to control my other computers wherever I am using the Screen Sharing tool. In Lion, connectiong through my local network still works just fine by enabling Screen Sharing on my other devices, but now I am having difficulties connecting to my computers remotely.

In SL I could easily setup my connection by using Finder > Go > Connect to server.

Now that menu item seams gone. Whatdo?

This is the one I'm looking for:

Command-K, still there right under the Go To Folder command.

For Screen Sharing, start System > Library > CoreServices > Screen Sharing and enter your (external) IP address.

If there are multiple Mac in your home behind a router, you'll probably have to setup some port mapping within the router, so it knows to which Mac to send the Screen Sharing request.

That, at least, get's me somewhere! It only starts the Screen Sharing app though. I can't see och modify the drives. I would prefer a V.P.N connection. Know how I can set that up?

I'm not sure, if you don't see it in your Go menu or command-K does not work. I'll see if I can find a command from terminal to bring up the GUI.
I finally got to it. For some reason this menu had been deactivated in OnyX! No wonder I couldn't find it. Guess that's what you get for running a beta version!

Sorry and thanks everybody :apple:

Thanks SO much for sharing that! I was going nuts trying to figure out why I didn't have "connect to server" item in my Go menu. I probably never would have thought of checking Onyx.
