Remote desktop to Mac from various platforms (Windows, Ubuntu)

I try to make a remote desktop connection from Win 7 machine to Mac OS Leopard machine. How can I accomplish that? Thanks

EDIT: When I try to connect via VNC after entering the IP address and password of server, program exits with a command line is visible for 1 second and anything happens. What is the problem do you think?

If you mean to control your Mac from Windows, just use VNC.

Mac has a built in VNC server. Go to System Preferences -> Sharing -> Screen sharing.

Then get a free VNC viewer for your PC, eg. http://www.realvnc.com/products/free/4.1/winvncviewer.html

Try the UltraVNC viewer - uvnc.com/download/1082/1082viewer.html –  Alex Jun 1 '10 at 14:50
    
Have tried and result is the same. Could it be related to 64 bit OS somehow? I use Win 7 Ultimate x64 –  EEE Jun 1 '10 at 15:22
    
That was my immediate thought, although on UVNC's site it says it's compatible. I assume you're trying from an admin account? Also try the "XP mode" if you have it. –  Alex Jun 1 '10 at 15:39

Thank you very much for your responses. Changing connection speed from Auto to LAN solved the problem in UVNC. –  EEE Jun 1 '10 at 17:51

Try Irapp:

Use your Mac and PC simultaneously through a single monitor, mouse, and keyboard. Welcome to the Switzerland of computing. . . iRAPP is an application that gives you merged, interactive access to your Mac OS X remote desktop via your PC. You can choose to view the Mac in a blended session with Windows and OS operating systems into one window, or you may use the built in Remote Desktop Protocol to view it in a separate window. Either way, iRAPP allows you to connect from PC to Mac remote desktop right within the Windows environment.

You just need to download the following Remote Desktop connection client for your Mac and then use the Windows 7 IP address to establish a remote desktop connection from the Mac to the Windows 7 machine.
