How to securely control another Mac over the internet
Authored by: whitehat101 on May 11, '05 01:11:44AM
127.0.0.1 is the loopback address, so you won't have to change it no matter what the setup.

I first tried this with 10.3.9, CotVNC, and ARD 2.2 and I got errors when connecting (I was just connecting to myself) but then I saw that the link to 'the latest' was 2.1. I went back to 2.1 and I connected to myself fine. Now I just have to try it from my laptop, but I don't predict any problems. Other than it's Win2000, but putty and MetaVNC should work nicely.

If someone has gotten ARD2.2 to connect let me know, I'm not sure why they weould prevent VNC unless just to prenent what we're doing and make us pay $200...
