Ive done a forum search but everything lately is for ipad connections. I have my router forward to dydns and all my ports for ftp, ssh, vnc open both on my mac and router. I am able to access my mac using VNC from any computer I get access to, its just so slow. Is there a free faster alternative? Something like apple remote desktop without the price tag? I mainly log on to run my usenet downloads or to encode video for when I get home ready to watch. Its very doable with my current method, but I wouldnt mind some extra speed. thanks in advance!
