In this ebook from networking expert Glenn Fleishman, you'll find essential details on configuring common routers to work with Back to My Mac, learn about the security implications of Back to My Mac, and discover how to wake up a remote Mac. The ebook covers Back to My Mac in both Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard and 10.6 Snow Leopard.
