Remote Access from MAC to MAC

**NOTE: These instructions are for connecting to a Mac computer from another MAC.**

Connecting to your Apple computer from home is very easy.  You will first need to enable Screen Sharing for all users on your work computer before being able to connect to it from home.  Follow these steps to set up Screen Sharing on your office computer computer:

1.  Open System Preferences and click on the sharing icon.

2.  In the Sharing window, check the box for Screen Sharing and make sure the radio button for All users is selected. 

3.  Next, make note of the IP address since you will be using it to connect from home.  (Note:  Please right down the ip address exactly as it is shown in Sharing Prefences.  You will need to include rev.uncw.edu)

Now that your work computer is all set up, its time to get connected to it from your home computer.  You will need VPN setup for this to work.

1.  On your home computer, go to Finder, then click on Go then Connect to Server.  (Command K for shortcut)

2. In the blank box, type in vnc://your ip address.rev.uncw.edu.  Hit connect and you will prompted for your User Name and Password.  Put this in and you will have access to your computer.
