Remote control takes on a whole new meaning with iChat in Leopard. Share your own desktop or share your buddy’s — you both have complete control at all times.
To share screens both you and your buddy must be running OS X 10.5 Leopard. If you haven’t starting using iChat yet, open it from your Applications folder and follow the prompts to get an iChat account. Add your buddy to your list by pressing the large plus (+) button in the lower left corner and entering the user name they give you.
To share your screen, select a buddy from your list and choose either Share my Screen or Ask to Share from the Buddies menu. When you start a Screen Sharing session, iChat automatically initiates an audio chat so you can talk things through while you’re at it. If you’re sharing your buddy’s screen, you can switch between viewing your screen and your buddy’s screen. You can also copy files between your computer and your buddy’s by dragging them from one desktop to the other. Both participants can do anything on the shared desktop such as opening folders and creating documents. Needless to say, only share your screen with people you trust.
