I am trying to find a easy way to connect my windows machine from my office to my mac computer at home. I have found some of these others ways of doing this but i am trying to find a easier and faster way of doing it. I also tried some vnc programs and they seem a little slow. http://howto.diveintomark.org/remote-mac/ http://www.zdnet.com.au/insight/software/soa/Connect-Windows-systems-to-a-Mac-network/0,139023769,339271086,00.htm thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

As far as a cross platform solution PC -> MAC, VNC is the best solution. The slowness is likely due to a combination of the speed of your internet connection, the resolution on your mac, and the color depth you’ve chosen on your mac.

I believe you can turn off some features in VNC such as transmitting the background, encryption (though you may want that), and other features that may speed things up.

    I have had the best luck with UltraVNC...has a lot of speed options..so you can dial it to your needs.
