It's another week and I have another stupid question. I'm trying to connect to a Mac Mini about 300 miles away over the internet none the less, and it won't work. I have the correct IP address and the ports are forwarded on the AEBS I'm trying to connect to. The problem is that it's not working. I type in the address and it tries to connect forever and then it says I need to enable VNC on the host computer which I've done. My question is have I still missed something? I've heard about SSH but what is it and is it necessary? All I want to do is control my mom's computer when she has a problem. Any help is greatly appreciated.
