Default Remote Desktop for Mac?

For Windows XP it is built in. Is there a built in version for Mac or do I have to spend $300 on it? I don't need to manage 10 Macs, just need to access my work computer from home. Maybe there is a different program for this?

If all you want to do is control one Mac with another over a network then there is a free solution using two pieces of software. Unfortunately I can't remember what they are!

I was told about them on www.snarkish.com so if you pop over there I'm sure someone will tell you.

Just checked on Snarkish and here's an extract from the post that told me about the solution:

This works similar to Apple Remote Desktop and is free. Not as feature-full for other things, but adequate for this.

Thanks, Mike. I do have a VNC program but I thought maybe there was something even a little easier. The one I have is called OSXvnc 1.71 by Redstone Software. Maybe I'll try a couple.

I'm under the impression that the two I mentioned work together to give an easy-to-use result. I think that one of the applications has to be loaded onto both computers and the other only on to one.

I did download and read a bit about them but then I managed to solve my problem a different way (I was trying to print to a remote printer). It could be worth asking over in Snarkish.

Good luck.

You can use Apple Remote Desktop client for remotely accessing MAC computers. You can download the same from Apple or download.com website. For remotely accessing Windows computer from MAC, install Microsoft Windows RDC client on MAC or you can even consider deploying on premise remote support appliance such as RHUB appliances.
