    I just ordered my new Imac (24", 2.8, 2G, 500G-hd) and I want to know if there is any program that is similar to LogMeIn for Windows?

    I basically need a program that will allow me to connect to my own computer from anywhere with an internet connection (Mac to a Mac) without having to have someone on the other side having to accept my connection. I would like to connect to my iMac from my school's MacPro's without having to call home to tell them to accept my incoming connection.

    I have heard of "Apple Remote Desktop" but Im not sure if it can be used as a Remote Desktop or just used for Remote Assistance...

    Thanks for your help :)

    Actually, LogMeIn is available for Mac as well. I've used it to do things on my MBP from work.

    VNC offers the ability for you to use any operating system as your client, and its free.

    That it does. For connecting from a Windows machine I'd recommend TightVNC.
