    Hey

    All the time I have PC users needing my help, what is the easiest way to share their screen with me on my Mac. Do they need to set anything up in the control panel for this to work? I have heard about CoRD, and Chicken of the VNC, but not much else, and haven't found a way for it to work.

    Thanks for your help,
    Michael Lindahl

    To throw another possibility out there:

    If you have Parallel's Desktop or VMWare's Fusion, install Windows Live Messenger and do "Remote Assistance".

    I'd say logmein,

    if you want to use remote desktop or some sort of VNC then you may have to do some router configuration changes on their side.

    Hence why logmein is so useful.
