RemoteTap is a fast remote management client for Macs. Watch the screen of any Mac in your local network or over the Internet, and control it's keyboard and mouse, even over a slow mobile connection. It supports displays up to 30" and even Macs with multiple displays.
It comes with a free RemoteTap preferences pane including a special server software for the Mac. This software scales screen images right on the Mac, before they are send to the iPhone. This reduces the amount of bandwidth required to transfer a full screen image to down to 5% of the original size.
NOTE: If you are unfamiliar with network settings on your Mac, try the free RemoteTapLight first.
NOTE: YOU NEED TO INSTALL THE FREE REMOTETAP PREFERENCES PANE ON THE MAC FIRST BEFORE BEING ABLE TO CONNECT.
