Back to My Mac is simply so cool.

Back To My Mac

I've been a .Mac member since May 2004. Although .Mac has always been considered sort of expensive, I have been enjoying it. And over the years, it simply gets better.

To many people, .Mac is simply (or unfairly) judged by web server space and email account. To me, I don't need another web space or email accounts, but I still use .Mac mainly for the services it provides. One crucial service is the syncing between multiple Macs.

In August last year, Apple expanded .Mac service with Web Gallery and 10GB storage. Upon Mac OS X Leopard's release, there's another bonus for .Mac and Leopard users - Back to My Mac.

Sharing files between Macs have always been easy. Back to My Mac simply makes it even easier and more powerful. With Back to My Mac, you don't just being able to access files on the other Mac over indoor network or internet, you can even see and control the other Mac.

This is a screenshot of Back to My Mac's screen sharing in action. I launched Parallels Desktop on my MacBook Pro from iMac through Back to My Mac.

When accessing via Internet, as long as the networks (on both sides) are not extremely restrictive. Back to My Mac can be the easiest way to connect to your other Mac. For average home users, there's no need to buy or install software like Remote Desktop.

Overall, I don't think .Mac">.Mac is that expensive, and I simply like it more. You can save money on .Mac subscription when you buy a new Mac. did that I ordered the MacBook Pro.

Back to My Mac is compatible with AirPort Extreme, AirPort Express, or third-party routers which fully support NAT Port Mapping Protocol (NAT-PMP) or Universal Plug and Play (UPnP).
