    Hi!

    I'm trying to use my Macbook from my PC using VNC.

    It works, but I can only get the native resolution of the Macbook, 1280x800 - is there anyway to change it? I have a big display and I could really use a higher resolution.

    I have tried the default screen sharing and Vine on the mac side (server) and realvnc and ultravnc for client on the PC but I can't figure out how to change the resolution.

    Thanks!

    I prefer using TeamViewer, which works with Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Ubuntu, iPhone, iPad, etc. It's very secure and quite simple to set up and use.

    Thanks,

    I'm sure it's great, but if I understood correctly it's rather expensive for business use. I have a one-man business so I guess I don't qualify for a private user. Should have mentioned that first, sorry.

    If there are any cheaper not to mention free alternatives that work as well, I would love to know.

    I see. You didn't mention that you were using it for business purposes.

    From the TeamViewer site:

    I don't know that any VNC solutions are going to help you with that particular problem. What exactly are you accessing? Maybe there's a better way that would allow you to take advantage of your screen real estate more efficiently.
