    So I got this brilliant idea that I would try to emulate GOTOMY PC on my mac since there is apache. I know ... the security probably wouldn't be great, but I figured if it worked then I would be able to hire someone to fix up the rest of the security holes ...

    That leads me to my first question ... has someone done an http gotomypcish thing on a mac?

    My next question requires some prefacing ... I used automator to take screenshots every second and used a perl cgi to display it and send the click location back to the apache server. Then, I used a premade "click" command to click at that coordinate. I am guessing that I'd have to change the permissions on terminal (which the mouse click program uses) and a bunch of other stuff in order to get it to work. So I debugged my code and the ONLY problem with it was that the click function wouldn't actually click the location on the screen from the CGI ... everything else worked fine. I was SOOO pissed off. Sigh ... anyway ... anyone have a different solution for me or can solve my programming woes?

    If remote screen sharing is what you're looking for, why not just use VNC? There's lots of links on how to do this. (It's easy)

    Here's one

    I was hoping not to have to install a client on a remote windows computer, but I guess it's ok. Not too much of a hassle.

    is there an online VNC client that is either java based or something?
