Right now, just for testing it's XP and softetherVPN. If it ends up working I will be installing win7 and going at it again.

I'm wondering if I go though the VPN and use google remote desktop the connection would be more stable and therefore more usable.

I can see the whole network but the Mac.

I might have some time tonight to drag out our old CTP pc and install an OS and softetherVPN. Actually it already has XP on it so I may just use that for now.

The install wasn't bad at all. Connecting to the PC was easy. Android I haven't been able to get connected.

io9.com has a deal for a paid VPN for secure browsing and such. $20 for 3 years of service so I figured what the hell.

We actually have three older (s-l-o-w) computers that got replaced (one OSX prepress workstation, one Windows with SmartBoard, and a second Windows prepress workstation) that we stuck up in the rafters for emergencies. If something catastrophic ever occurs, we can yank one of those boxes down and hook it up temporarily while we fix the problem.

I'm happy for you Digi.

Back to this pain in the ass. I can ping the mac remotely but it doesn't show up in network, I can't find it with any of the sharing options in preferences.  :huh:

So you can go from Windows to Mac, but not Mac to Windows? Have you created a Macintosh share? This is moot if you have extremez-ip.

I presume the Mac is on the same workgroup? Can you see the PC from the Mac?

I'll scroll back and see what OS's you're using on both machines.

What exactly are you wanting to do with the mac. You are logged into to the PC through the VPN how? SSH? Remote Desktop of some sort? or how?

I can see all the PCs except my netbook from the Mac.

On the netbook I can see everything but the Mac. 

OSes are XP for the vnc box, win7 for the netbook and 10.6.8 on the Mac.

The PC is going through my cell connection (need to be on a outside network for the VNC) through the VNC. The connection seems to be Direct TCP/IP or so it says.

I just set up PrintSmith access via VPN on a Netgear router last week, but I was going Mac-to-Mac. I had to punch a hole in the firewall with an access port. It is set up through TCP. I don't know your Mac's port.

OK so you can ping the mac through that VPN connection. What are you trying to do with it?

I was going to try and remote into the Mac but it's not playing nice.

Now I have a new issue of a cover to print first thing monday, no fucking paper and the pressmen are off monday so I have to plead.

Yeah, the boss is already gone so I have to do it.

I use JumpDesktop app on the tablet to access my Mac at work. It's RDP/VNC and it has worked well for me. I use it on iPad but I think they have it for PC and Android too.

It can be a bit laggy at times, but I expect that, working remotely.
