Use a G5 as headless port/drive extender and MIDI server
Authored by: Ohmelas on Mar 14, '12 10:42:06AM

This is an awesome idea but it leaves me with two questions:

1. What if I was using an Older G5 as the Main computer and wanted to VNC into qty. 2 Windows 6 64-bit 8 Core Systems?

Note: Mac Office 200x (4?) and later had remote desk-top but it only worked on Intel Macs.

2. What kind of system changes would I have to make to the Win-7 PC's to allow automatic log-in by the Mac?

3, Would Expose in 10.4 on my G5 Mac allow me to switch easily between Windows Remote 1 and Windows Remote 2 while still using a seuquencer (Digital Performer) on Mac G5?

Use: I have a MIDI patch bay as well that I'll be using on the G5 to run virtual instruments on both PC's. I have 16 channels of MIDI running into both Wintel from the outputs of an 8x8 MIDI Patch Bay. I'm also aware that I can send this through my ethernet but if that saves me some overhead, I'll stick with the USB MIDI solution.
