    I am at an internship for repairing computers. My boss has a remote client program that works to access a customer's windows computer from his windows computer to help them with a problem. One of his customers now has an iMac and would like to be able to receive the same service.

    Problem is that we need to be able to access the Mac without having the customer having to forward any ports. Is this possible?

    Yes I believe it is. Through SSL Here are a bunch of tutorials that will show you how to turn a Mac into a server. The techniques here will also work to allow you to access that Mac through VNC software. So here we go.

    Here are the two main programs the tutorials use.

    1. http://sourceforge.net/projects/cotvnc/ Chicken of the VNC, the main page with the screen shots are gone but the software is at this site for download/

    2. http://www.grepsoft.net/jellyfissh.html This is the second piece of software called Jellyfish this will let you create the SSL tunnel.

    3. This is the most important part. Here are the videos that will let you set this up to access the computer remotely http://www.freemacblog.com/category/server-video-series/

    Under Categories on the middle of the page there are 16 video, have fun watching a learning.



    You should be able to set everything up with these three pieces
