10.5: Screen share with multiple Macs behind one NAT
Authored by: mclbruce on Aug 07, '09 10:11:27PM
I think this hint could be simpler:
"Open the ScreenSharing app, in /System » Library » CoreServices."
How about Finder: Go: Connect to Server instead? That's what I use for VNC. If you are already in the Finder, the shortcut is command-K.
"you can simply type vnc://server01.mydomain.com:5901 into Safari,"
This is the format that I use in Connect to Server
"you can bookmark these URLs"
There is a plus key in the Connect to Server window that will add your connection to the Favorite Servers list in the window.

I hope I'm not missing something...

10.5: Screen share with multiple Macs behind one NAT

You are indeed missing something. This hint suggests a method for connecting to different machines when you are outside the local network, hence the machines are "behind one NAT", like an Airport router. HTH

Ooops! Sorry!

I misread your suggestion. Yes I think that method will work outside the local network. I would however recommend SSH so as not to have to open any port other than 22 on the router. I use SSH Tunnel manager to avoid having to remember the command line syntax.
