Remote desktop app for mac over internet
Can someone recommend a free (or cheap) remote desktop app for remotely accessing a mac computer from an iPad 2 over the Internet? Tried some research last night and didn't find much encouraging. Seem to be plenty for Windows machines and a few good options for mac over wifi, but not much for mac over Internet, apart from apps with double figure price tags.
Anything out there? Thanks.
Hi eN0ch, I use LogMeIn Free
I've been using this for about 3 years now. I also use the paid version where I need to be able to transfer files (one of the few things the free version doesn't do. LogMeIn is much better IMHO as it provides security within the app, unlike VNC or the built-in Apple screen sharing facility. Please - no flame wars, it is simply an opinion - MINE.
LogMeIn works with both Macs and PC's, interchangeably. To check LogMeIn out, see logmein dot com.
Using LogMeIn requires you to set up an master account where individual accounts, either free or paid, will be established for all machines you will access using their service. It is actually very simple to do. They good online information you can read to learn about their product. I tried to include them in this post but wasn't allowed to as I am a new member here.
A small BHO (browser helper object) will be installed on the machine you will use to control from and a service (background) program will be installed on each computer you will control. You are not limited to one free account!
Note: I do not work for nor am I paid by LogMeIn. I just like and use their products.
