SpyMe is a remote management utility.

It allows supervising a remote Mac's screen, and sending keyboard and mouse actions. If you have used VNC or Apple Remote Desktop before, you'll get the idea. So what is the difference between VNC and SpyMe? Well, SpyMe was developed for (and by) people who need to support other remote Mac users, who might not always have a high speed Internet connection.

Just wanted to say that the program works like it is advertised. If you follow the directions and take a look at the tutorial set up at ÒScreen Screen Casts OnlineÒ, you shouldnÕt have any problems. I will let you know that it took me a long time to get the program to work over the internet, but found out that the router I was using was not port forwarding correctly. Changed routers and was up and running in ten minutes. The comments about the lack of response from the developer is correct. I tried four times and got one response.

JBH,
I firmly disagree when you say that -> "The comments about the lack of response from the developer is correct. I tried four times and got one response.

I contacted the developer twice and can only say that the answers (to my stupid question) came back super fast and helpful !

Last time he responded in less than 10 minutes !

Let me add that IMMO SpyMe is a must have for all those who want to remote control a Mac, the $15 are more than justified for such a stable, easy to use and reliable piece of software !

I use it on a dialy basis and can say it's way better/faster than any "standard VNC" !

Just "heard" some very good news about SpyMe but I'll let the developer announce it himself ;-)

Spyme 2.0 works good for me over the internet when used with HamachiX. Hamachix can be found at http://hamachix.spaceants.net/.

Although relatively inexpensive at $15, you might wish to first check out Chicken of the VNC which is free. I'm still not clear from the description as to what features this offers that (free) VNC does not.

This is the first program to offer up full screen support which makes working with my remote 23" display easy using my MacBook Pro since I don't have to scroll around all the time.

SpyMe is also very fast over low bandwidth connections and you can even limit the bandwidth so you don't eat up all your outgoing pipe.

I've been looking for an alternative to VNC. This has potential, but it seems to be just as buggy. I can't connect form my laptop to my desktop but I can connect to my laptop from my desktop (both running the same version of Tiger). Weird. When it does work, it seems really nice - especially with the real-time scaling.

Wow, i'm very suprised....Great Little Appp much better for me than Remote Desktop....and i spent so much Money on Apple Remote Desktop.... This APP works much better than ARD and Timbuktu & others... If you have to manage some Mac's over the Internet and with low Bandwith than this is for you !!!!
For me i can do the same with SpyMe as with ARD & Timbuktu...etc. Well give it a Try !!!!!
