I have a 11" macbook running Lion that I routinely need to connect remotely from another windows machine. I have been using vnc client on Windows via Lion's screen sharing but the screen size is too small and doesn't seem to be adjustable. Anyone know of a better solution? I wasn't able to compile vncserver's source code on Lion and I haven't been able to find a replacement for screen sharing.

This is off-topic, but I liked LogMeIn. – Ryan O'Hara May 28 '12 at 23:33

You could use TeamViewer. It's cross-platform and free for personal use.

+1 for teamviewer. works a treat - can access your remote computers using the desktop software or their web-interface. But best of all, you can initiate file transfers which is really handy – OrangeBox May 29 '12 at 4:54

No need to compile VNC Server. Go to Sharing in System Preferences, enable Remote Management, click Computer Settings, check box to enable VNC and enter a password that will be required to authenticate connection.

You could try LogMeIn.. It's free and works well on Mac. :)
