Screen sharing lets you control the mouse and keyboard of one computer while you sit at another computer across the room or on the other side of the world. It's great for providing remote tech support, configuring and managing a remote server, and collaborating on documents. In recent versions of Mac OS X, Apple has piled on the options, enabling screen sharing via iChat, Bonjour, directly by entering an IP address, and Back to My Mac. Plus, Skype has a screen sharing feature and various iPhone apps offer remote screen sharing.
All these screen sharing choices bring complexity, and this book helps you match your situation to the best screen-sharing option for your needs. You'll learn how to configure the software-and set up your router, if necessary. And, should something not work as expected, the book also includes problem-solving advice.
