i've been using OSXvnc and loving it of course.

I've given all my PC friends a mac account on my computer. LOL.

BUT, the trouble is you need a VNC viewer. I give them tight VNC viwer which is a nice, small .exe file.

However, i've done this on a windows machine before where i can upload them onto a web server then i can control the computer reomotely from any web broswer. Can you do this on a mac? This would be great since i wont need to carry around the viewer program to access my computer.

whats the fastest VNC server available?

TightVNC has a java-based version of their client - that is what you need.

all the VNC's install the java based VNC version ... you just connect on port 5800

You may need to open that port on any firewalls you have so that external users can get in.

yeah i&#39;ve done that, its works fine when i use a cilent. But not when i use the web browser.

I don&#39;t think OSXvnc supports web browser viewing.

Anway i just found out i can use use Apple Remote Desktop. I trust is more than a 3rd party software. Does Apple Remote Desktop allow for access via a web browser?

aside from VNC, is there a program that will allow for live streaming of my desktop for conference and demo purposes? I don&#39;t need the connected parties to interact or control the desktop, i just need them to be able to see the desktop. Plus i realise that on VNC when you have more than one user viewing the speed slows down since uploading is limited to about 20kb on optus cable. SO is there a program which uploads the stream to a remote web server then allows lots of users to view it? Kinda like a internet web cam but with the desktop.

also with VNC is there a easy way to secure the connect other than the password. Is SSL hard to configure? does it require any configuration on the other end (external user)?
