Apple Remote Desktop Administration from a PC with NAT
Authored by: josesuareziii on Oct 30, '07 09:31:54AM

Wow, that's a lot of work. Here's what I do:

1. PC person: configure your router to open and forward port 5500 to the individual PC. While you're connected to your router, write down your public IP address.

2. PC person: run the TightVNC viewer. Hit the Listening Mode button.

3. Mac person: go to, download Schnitz Remote Lite, and run the program. You don't have to install it (it runs fine from the mounted disk image) nor do anything on your router.

4. Mac person: type in the PC person's public IP address and hit the Connect button.

That's it -- the PC is now controlling the Mac.

I like my method better. :)

My method doesn't do SSH tunneling, but it could be added with a few steps. Not worth it, in my opinion, for the occasional tech support connection.
