    Hi

    I have tried a few Google searches however for feedback and short time to achieve this I could do with some direct answers:

    Is it possible for me to set up a remote desktop on a Windows 7 based notebook to be viewed from a Apple notebook over the internet?


    Scenario:
    My gf has a degree show tomorrow where she needs to present her uni project - her project is a game. The problem is that the projects need to be left in place over night/a week for grading, therefore she would need to leave a notebook in the uni over night.

    The uni provided her a Mac notebook (only ones they provide and won't provide a desktop) however tests tonight shows the game doesn't work. The only alternative is that she leaves her personal laptop there over night - unattended in a room where people are waking in and out and security features that are never turned on. She doesn't live in the same city as the uni either, so it is not like we can easily check up on it every few minutes.

    On the other hand, if there is a way I can set up a interactive remote desktop so the Mac Notebook so the uni can interact with the Windows notebook over the net we can leave the uni provided Mac in place in the degree show space and have the Windows notebook on 24 hours in a room at home.

    ___

    Any solutions need to be figured out tonight as submissions are tomorrow unfortunately. Any help will be greatly appreciated (or any suggestions on dealing with this i.e. forcing the uni to provide a desktop at gun point lol).


    Thanks

    What is more important, you must make a port forwarding from external 3389 port to the 3389 port on the laptop.

    Yeah I was looking at that before, I'll have to give them both a try tomorrow. ^The ports maybe a problem. But I guess I can try it still anyways although it all depends on what the uni allows.

    Thanks and +rep to you both, I will report on feed back if I can get it going.

    CoRD is my personal preference as I had problems with the Microsoft one.

    Yes, TeamViewer is available for Mac.
