    I help a friend that has a paper business out with basic problems they run into. I was wondering what a good VNC program would be so I could access their computers (all macs) from mine. There probably is a way to do it that is built into leopard but I really don't know how to set that up. Any suggestions?
    -Thanks, Kyle

    It is remote. I think where I am confused is accessing their computer via the IP. I don't understand how somebody else out there doesn't have the same number. It says "Other users can access your computer at vnc://10.0.1.xxx/ or browse for "TreeceImac"


    There isn't any way that can be right. How do I know what to put into the host field.

    I use RealVNC. I don't even know if it is possible to use VNC over the internet unless the computer is connected directly to the internet without using a router. Otherwise it won't have an IP you can access outside of the network.

    All of these computers are hooked up to a router. Do I have to set the router up a certain way?

    You need to setup a VPN so you're in the network then just VNC like that.

    Any suggestions on where I might look as to how to set up a VPN on an AirPort Extreme. When i google it all I find is shit from ExpertsLounge and I don't want to pay to be a member there.
