Windows 7: Remote Access to Mac mini via VNC client/server

Remote Access to Mac mini via VNC client/server

Hi Team,

I plan to get a mac mini. I would like to have direct access to the machine remotely, just like i did when i connected my laptop pc to my desktop pc via VNC.

My specific question :- is it possible to access the mac via a remote client so that it opens in a window on a Win7 64bit I7 pc?

I ultimately want to control the mac desktop via my win7 pc, mouse and keyboard.

Thanks in advance.

Why wouldn't you just install VNC on your new Mac machine, allowing it to be controlled from the PC?

The product itself is cross-platform.

There are downloads for each host and each client environment.

I'm not a Mac person and only use VNC for Windows hosts and clients. But the product's description certainly shows it as being intended to be cross-platform capable.

Hi Dsperber,

Yes indeed, thank you, VNC appears to be cross-platform, as you indicate. I'm hoping that a mac/pc user might chip in with potential pitfalls or issues on configuration after i have installed the server on the Mac and the client on the pc.
