This works perfectly from remote

I'm answering here as you did not mail me, I have no idea why you didn't contact me ( the developer) by mail when you have questions.

JollysFastVNC works perfectly to remotly work with other Macs, WIndows, Linux or other PCs. It will even lift of the burden to create an ssh tunnel when you only have access to the network via ssh tunnels on the primary firwalls. I'm sure the issue you are having lies within your network setup.

Brilliant iTunes Remote

I store and Play music on my iMac, which is in a different room to where I play my music. I have been using an old iPod as a remote control but as I mostly use a Macbook Air around the house
I decided to make this my main remote control. I bought a copy of Jollyfast VNC which installed very easily.

The set up was a bit more complicated as I needed to learn about setting up a VNC connection. This involves making changes to the sharing options on the iMac and also changing the Port Forward setting on the router. Once this was complete the program worked perfectly.

Now I can romotely control my music and also access remotely, any programs or documents which reside on the iMac.

Jolly Fast VNC works very smoothly with minimal delay and suits my requirements exactly.
Very good value for money.

Best VNC client for Mac

Okay, so it's hard to get excited about a VNC client, but credit where credit's due, this is a great little piece of software (I use it on a daily basis). The support is first class, with prompt responses to questions about functionality, suggestions for new features, etc.

I used the trial version for quite some time, but was more than happy to pay up for this. You won't be disappointed.
