    Hi guys, when I installed MS office on my mac recently I noticed it gave me remote desktop connection so I figured I'd give it a try. I can connect to my windows 7 computer fine, but is there a way I can connect to my mac using remote desktop connection on the windows 7 computer? whenever I put in my Mac's IP address it gives me an error saying make sure the computer isn't asleep and what not. I don't know if there's something I need to enable on RDC on my Mac?

    Thanks for the help,

    Macs don't have the Remote Desktop server. There is no way to install it either. As its Microsoft's software and a part of their server package. The closest thing Mac has is VNC/ScreenSharing.
