How to securely control another Mac over the internet
Authored by: hoogie69 on Mar 19, '07 12:00:57PM

Excellent Thread.

I don't know ('cause a search of the forum couldn't find it) if this has been addressed. I am the "Help Desk" for my mom. We both run OS X 10.4.8. I connect over broadband (Comcast) and she connects via a dial-up/PPP ISP. How/can the techniques described in this thread be used under these circumstances? Would Timbuktu work also? TIA for any responses.

Yes you can use this approach. But I think you will find it very slow since she is on dial up.

I understand that OSXVNC server (or vine server) is faster. So you may want to experiment and turn off ARD and install OSXVNC server (or vine server) on your Mom's computer.
