Connect with Back to My Mac

As soon as you enable Back to My Mac, you’ll see all of your remote Back to My Mac computers in the Shared list in the sidebar of your Finder windows (Figure 33), along with any local computers. (If you don’t see your Back to My Mac machines, see If a Computer Doesn’t Appear in the Sidebar, ahead in this chapter.)

Figure 33: In a Finder window, the sidebar’s Shared list shows Back to My Mac computers as well as those sharing over the local network using Bonjour.

Now, this list can be rather confusing because it lists alphabetically all other computers on your local network, any file servers that you’ve directly connected to, and every enabled and available Back to My Mac computer.

What about base stations? The Shared list also shows any base stations with internal (Time Capsule) or external (AirPort Extreme or Time Capsule) drives that are being shared via MobileMe’s Back to My Mac, but those obviously can’t be connected to via screen sharing! (iCloud, at the time of this writing, doesn’t work with base stations.)
