So, I have been trying to figure this out for quite some time now and can't get it working. Here is my situation. For my first test, I'm trying to connect from my mac to a pc on my network that is set up in the apartment. The router we are using is a D-Link DIR-625. I'm trying to use Apple Remote Desktop to connect to one of the roommates pc's running windows xp home. You can use ARD to connect to a windows machine right? I've tried using a VNC server on the pc and don't think I am setting it up right. I have also tried to figure out the port forwarding if you have to use that since its connected through a router. I'm not sure how this all works. The firewalls on the pc were also turned off. If someone knows how to do this and would help me out step by step, i would greatly appreciate it. The next task after that would be to connect to my parents' computer also running xp home. I'm guessing this would be the same procedure though? All help is appreciated.
