I need a simple way to remote access a MAC from a PC.  The MAC is running OSX and the PC is running XP Pro.  Both PCs are in different locations and are behind firewalls, but I have access to both and can open whatever ports I need to.  Is there a simple inexpensive way to do this?

There are two ways off the top of my head:

Command line only:  turn on the SSH server  

VNC remote access for desktop access:  

Both of these can be turned on in the System Preferences --> Sharing

You'll want screen sharing and remote login

For the VNC solution you will need a client on Windows side. E.g. www.TightVNC.com.
For the ssh solution you will need a ssh client on Windows side. E.g. putty from http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

Hi guys.  Actually, I ended up using logmein and it worked perfectly.  Better yet..it was free.
