I am unable to connect my two computers remotely….can you assist?
Using two Macs running 10.5.2 and broadband on both ends. Settings for the Target Mac and the Laptop are as follows:
TARGET MAC….Sharing set on Remote Management; Show Remote Management status…/Anyone may request…./VNC viewers may…..are all checked; and in “All local users can access”…..are all checked. LAPTOP MAC….VNC Login I have used both the IP address that I received from MyIPAddress.com as well as trying “new-host.home” which appears in the Sharing window on the Target Mac but neither works.
The pre-set port of 5500 and a resetting to either 5900, or 5901 do not work. There is no firewall set on either router; also “Use Bonjour” is checked.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
