Screen Sharing is a built in feature of Leopard 10.5.  You need to open System Preferences and click on "Sharing" from the macs you want to control.  From there select screen sharing and enable it.  Now on the mac you want to use to observe, open the finder from the doc and you should see the other computers. double click and login...  I use this at home all the time from my macbook to control or observe the G4 or Mac Mini we have.

Tiger had built in remote desktop functionality. I assume that it is still there in Leopard, but I don't know for sure. You will need a VNC client, such as Chicken of the VNC (http://sourceforge.net/projects/cotvnc/)
Also, check out this video for help on setting it up (http://www.macminicolo.net/videos/ServerVideo3.mov)

There should be a program called "Apple Remote Desktop". It is a product made by Apple for just this purpose. Information and the ability to buy it are here:

It also comes with a widget version of it for easier control of remote desktops.

This sound like the network sharing is turned on on all three machines. If this is the issue, it is not a problem. It allows the computers to share files from the shared files folder. If this is annoying or if you do not wish to have this option available, go into "control panel" then "Network and Internet" then go to "Home Group" then go to "change advanced sharing settings" then turn off all of the options then "save changes" This is for a Windows 7 Machine but Vista machine should be pretty close to the same.

Can't share files/folders between networked computers...


I can answer this but I'm kinda winging it so you will have to figure some of this out for yourself.
By default, XP does not let you share your data over the network. Go into folder properties and enable simple folder sharing.
Go to control panel/network and enable file and printer sharing for your network adapter. Reboot and go.

Network a G4 (OS 9) to a eMac (OS X)


OK - first, crossover cables let you network PCs together without a switch or router. I would strongly recommend returning the crossover cable and buying a router so that you can use both computers on the internet at the same time.

Second, the eMac monitor can not directly be used as a monitor for your G4 - it's not built that way. However, you can use Screen Sharing on OS X (if both have Leopard) or Apple Remote Desktop software (if you buy it) to remote control the G4 using the eMac.

You will DEFINITELY need a monitor on the G4 in order to set it up at all, so I hope you have that.

Keep in mind that you can buy, for less than $200, an LCD screen that is larger and better quality than the eMac, and it would leave the eMac useful as a second computer. Since the eMac is unlikely to work at all with Leopard, and you'd have to buy Apple Remote Desktop, you're going to spend less money by buying a separate screen for the G4.

Could not connect to campus wifi through leopard


You may need to access the network with the ASCII password. Is there a system administrator you can contact to get this code? It will be a very long string of characters and replaces the typical password you seen in many Airport type setups.

Mac / Bluetooth / Viewty issues


http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=306631

To send a file using Bluetooth to a computer running Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, you must enable Bluetooth Sharing in Sharing preferences. By default, Bluetooth Sharing is turned off in Leopard.
  1. On each Mac OS X 10.5-based Mac, from the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
  2. From the View menu, choose Sharing.
  3. Check (click) the "On" box next to Bluetooth Sharing.
  4. Close the Sharing preferences window.`Works perfect

File/printer sharing between mac and vista


I just now figured out a way to do this.

Just to recap - This is the problem:
Printer is hooked up to Vista PC and I'm trying to print from my MacBook Pro with Leopard.

Before doing this, be sure to check that the exceptions on your firewall are set to enable "File and Printer Sharing".

1) Go to the Vista PC as the administrator user and find the Network and Sharing Center in your Control Panel.
2) You want to turn on everything under Sharing and Discovery EXCEPT for Password protected sharing.
3) You can now close this screen and go to Printers (also in the Control Panel)
4) Find the printer you want to share, and right-click.
5) Click "Sharing"
6) You want to enable this printer to be shared on the network.
7) Click Apply and OK.
8) Go to your Mac and install the software for your printer driver on the mac. If you don't have the software, you can search the website of the vendor (aka HP, Lexmark, Samsung) to find the driver that is right for you.
9) If you allowed sharing correctly, you can go to finder and see that the vista computer will be in your sidebar.
10) Close the finder window and open up System Preferences. Select Print and Fax.
11) In the toolbar, you'll find an option for "Windows". Click it.
12) The workgroup from the Vista PC should show up. Click it and follow the hiearchy down to the printer.
13) At this point, you'll probably be prompted to use put in your mac password. Do that.
14) Seach for your newly installed printer driver in the popup window (matches up with the make and model of your printer). Hit continue and follow the directions.

15) If all goes well, then happy printing. :) If not, I would download Network Magic.

I just put this up because I just figured it out after 4 hours... and it's FREE. :)
