10.5: How to use screen sharing remotely and securely
Authored by: michaeli on Mar 29, '13 02:35:36AM

Ok, maybe i'm just not getting this here. Can someone explain this after reading MY situation.

I am trying to access a mac that is REMOTE and behind an Apple Airport eXtreme, 2000 miles away. I am on a mac behind a Time Capsule, basically an APX also (with a hard drive).

So, they are both on private LANs, separated by the internet. I want to be able to see the REMOTE mac in finder on the left hand side, if possible.

How do I "bridge the gap" using the internet. I am not dumb, I am just not sure how I create this tunnel on the remote machine, when I am 2000 miles away from it. is there a way that I can just keep an active connection between the two remote networks somehow? I can access it now using iChat screen sharing, but I would like to do it using the screen and maybe if possible be able to transfer files using explorer like we were on the same LAN.

Is this possible? please tell me it is. Apple must have made this doable, right? how please help.

Cheers, Michael
