      Remote access MAC from PC

      Hi, I've got the remoteHD installed on my mac and ipad that allows me to fully control my mac from my ipad... great bit of software.

      I'd like to be able to do the same but use my laptop to control my mac (only interested in doing it on my internal network).

      I've done a bit of searching but can't seem to find much, it mostly returns accessing the PC from the MAC as opposed to MAC from PC.

      Anyone managed to do this?

      Ta!

      I have used logmein free in the past, but this allows you to access the pc/mac from anywhere not just internally

      https://secure.logmein.com/welcome/freeremotecontrolb/

      also found the below after a quick google search

      Control your Mac from your PC freely and easily | Internet & Media - CNET News
      AirPort Extreme + Sky Fibre Guide | Mac OSX Automator for xDSL stats for HG612 & Vigor 130

      LogMeIn is good and I used it for years, but the free version does not allow file transfers. I have now moved over to Teamviewer (TeamViewer - Free Remote Control, Remote Access & Online Meetings), which has versions for Windows, MAC, Linux (many different sorts), Android, IPhone, IPad and Windows Phone 8. It allows remote control and file transfers across all systems.

      Regards,
