    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!

    ive used teamviewer for supporting remote windows pcs for work. it's just getting the access codes from the remote mac depending where I am. Though I could get them first through the VNC.

    Most of the machines I use away from home are linux based, does teamviewer run well in wine?

    It runs well in Windows and Mac OS X. Haven't tried it with wine, just a cold Corona or shot of tequila. :D

    use the built-in VNC feature if it has 10.4: go into System Preferences -> Sharing -> Remote Desktop or use remote desktop software. There is an option in the configuration for VNC connections which you can enable. remote desktop connection
