I recently got a Mac mini as both a media centre and a desktop computer. I'd like control it remotely, over wifi, using my MacBook.
I have the impression that what's basically needed is to enable Screen Sharing (in System Preferences -> Sharing) on the Mini, and a VNC client program on the laptop. If that is correct, which (preferably free) VNC client is best suited for this job? Anything else I should know?
Update: While the OS X built-in VNC client is the quickest solution, JollysFastVNC and Chicken of the VNC seem strong options too. CotVNC clearly has the best keyboard "immersion", while JollysFastVNC seemed smoother in some other ways and is more actively developed.
For a future reader looking for a Mac VNC client, I suggest you try out the 3 top options below and pick the one that suits you!
