    I just installed Win 7 in bootcamp on my mac pro and want to be able to connect to it and control it from my MBP on a local network.

    I used to just use RDC when I was running win xp sp2 - worked great. Now, RDC doesn't work.

    I turned on screen sharing and installed realvnc in win 7. But, I can't use RDC still and I tried using chicken of the vnc and also the command-k: vnc://10.0.1.3

    Neither work - I set up realvnc to only require a password set in that program, the ip addy is correct, and realvnc says it is up and running on the mac pro.

    All help appreciated. Thanks.

    Which edition of Win7 are you using? Not all editions of Win7 allow for use of Remote Desktop incoming connections.
