Take Control of
Screen Sharing in Leopard

Glenn Fleishman

Leopard may make screen sharing accessible to normal Mac users, but networking expert Glenn Fleishman helps you figure out which type of screen sharing to use when, how to share screens with older versions of Mac OS X and Windows, and how to get the most out of Leopard’s hidden Screen Sharing app.

This product has been discontinued.

This ebook has been replaced by Take Control of Screen Sharing in Lion. The new edition still has plenty of details about 10.5 Leopard, and it has more current info about Skype, MobileMe, iCloud, 10.6 Snow Leopard, and iOS apps.
