10.5: Screen share with multiple Macs behind one NAT
Authored by: VesperDEM on Aug 07, '09 02:51:17PM

It's wonderful that you suggest using SSH to do screen sharing. However, there are some of us out there that have no clue how to accomplish this. Why not fill us in so that we can all share in your suggestion.

I for one would love to know of a way to do screen sharing on multiple computers without having to do anything to my router.

You connect to your ssh exposed computer with ssh myuser@myhost.com -L 5900:10.0.1.xxx:5900 where 10.0.1.xxx is the private IP (behind the NAT) of the computer you want to VNC to. This binds the remote port 5900 to your local port 5900 so when you VNC to vnc://localhost you will be able to connect to the remote computer.
