    I have a mac mini, and my friend just bought a Macbook Pro. I want to show him what screen sharing is but it says connection cannot be established. Any ideas why?

    he dosn't have screen sharing enabled, firewall is blocking it?
    is it on a local network or across the internet?

    How would he not have it installed? Isn't it something that is standard?

    Would the option to enable it be in ichat or under a system preference?

    It's enabled/disabled from within the Sharing preferences pane in System Preferences. There aren't any settings in iChat which control screen sharing.
