    I have a C2D mini running 10.5.2 and a G4-667 Tibook running 10.4.11. I note that in leopard there is an option for screen sharing but in tiger there is not. Typically I just use bonjour and place a network shortcut on my desktop to access files on the other computer, but am I missing a way to do screen control? Is there a free 3rd party program for this? Thanks guys.

    I know of two screen sharing apps, but I am not 100% on their Leopard/Tiger compatibility.

    First is Chicken of the VNC:

    Next is Desktop Transporter by Devon Technologies. It's $30, but has a free trial copy which should be full featured enough to help you in the short term:

    Again, I cannot speak to their Leopard/Tiger compatibility, so you may want to research that a bit.

    You also MIGHT be able to enable Apple Remote Desktop on your Tiger machine (Sharing folder in System Prefs) and use the Leopard screen sharing that way, though I have not tried it.

    This should be easily achieved. On your Tiger machine go to Sharing Prefs and turn on Remote Access. You're good to go.
