Take Control of Screen Sharing in Lion

Book Description

Screen sharing gives you the power to control the mouse and keyboard of one Mac while you sit at another, whether it's just across the room or on the other side of the world. It's great for helping far-flung colleagues and relatives run their Macs, managing a remote server, and collaborating in real time 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 can do screen sharing with Macs and Windows computers, and various iOS apps let you run your Mac by tapping and dragging.

Join networking guru Glenn Fleishman as he helps you identify the best screen-sharing option for your needs. You'll learn how to set up screen sharing, get tips on using iChat and Apple's Screen Sharing application, and find directions for Skype screen sharing. A separate chapter explains how to use the iTeleport and LogMeIn apps on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch to run a Mac remotely.
