Remote Control from a Mac

  • Thanks everyone. Parallels desktop seems the way to go but would require a Windows OS license - may not be worth it.

  • how about waiting until Mar. 1st when Kaseya releases "Kaseya 2008" which supports remote connection from PC's to Mac's.

    I was only joking with the guy. Hence the giant smile afterwards, didn't mean any harm, I know how Mac users get... very touchy!Smile

  • It however will not work from a Mac to a PC; still requires IE for now because the remote control function is ActiveX.

  • I am still really confused as to why anyone would use a Mac to support a PC? Very strange to me. While you are trying to reinvent the wheel I have been generating income while never leaving my pajamas. Have fun Mac boys. Kaseya will have support for Macs very soon, I think your best thing to do is throw the Mac to a child in Darfur so he can play with it, you go get a PC and start generating some income.Eek

  • I was thinking the same as VNET. Very funny. I understand Mac people love Macs but a low end pc can do everything you need without jumping through hoops.

  • Grant,
    There are ways to get Internet Explorer running on Mac OS X through wine and X11.

    I intend to experiment this weekend to get IE running on my MacBook and if I'm successful in getting IE and VNC working with Kaseya I'll post some instructions for you.

  • I have IE6 running on one of my test Mac minis using X11, and have successfully logged into my Kaseya site and initiated a VNC remote control to a PC.

    The Mac mini is using 10.5. I have not tested it on my 10.4 Mac mini yet.

  • There are some of us that have 15 years experience with Macs and none with PC's. Even so, I managed to get Kaseya mostly working within a few hours on an IBM server (w/ SBS 2003) by myself. It's a pig ugly operating system, but I'll admit it wasn't too hard. And the server was cheeeep!

    I'm glad you can make money in your pyjamas, but I'd have a better chance of doing the same if I could do Remote Control on a Mac.

    Of course I'd be doing it in Armani pyjamas. Mac users don't do Kmart!

    ps, I'm kidding. I don't wear pyjamas at all.
