    Is there a software I can use to control my PC with my mac? like if I set up a server on the PC and use the Client on a mac?

    I think you can use LogMeIn. You'll need to install software on the target PC and on the Mac you control the PC via a webbrowser, so no software needed on the Mac.
    There is also a beta btw which you can use to control a Mac (with another Mac or a PC).
    Both programs are free and easy to use.

    If the PC is running XP or Vista you can install the Remote Desktop Client software for Mac. Download it from Microsoft. It can work directly or over a vpn (the way I use it for work). It works pretty much the same as RDC on a PC, except you are running it on a Mac. You must enable remote connections on the PC first. It is MUCH faster than using vnc and some other methods, and is officially supported by MSFT.
