Chapter 5. Share Screens via Back to My Mac

Back to My Mac is a powerful new option in Leopard that allows secured, remote connections among computers that are operated by the same person. A .Mac account, required for use, ties the computers together. The feature allows both screen and file sharing over the Internet and local networks.

Back to My Mac seems like a simple feature on the surface, but it turns out to be rather complex to manage in all but the most straightforward circumstances. As a result, I've written a companion volume to this book called Take Control of Back to My Mac[2] that exhaustively explains how to get the service working and use it safely. In this section, I tell you enough to get started, however.
