How to Use Your Mac as a Server:
Turn your Mac Mini into a server! Yes, that's right, with a little know-how and a little spunk, you can turn an inexpensive Mac Mini computer into a server to provide services over you network. You won't even need the Mac OS X Server, just the Mac OS X Client, so there is no extra software to buy, just the Mac Mini and it's operating system.
This video tutorial from FreeMacBlog and MacMiniColo will show you how to setup VNC on your computer for your Mac Mini server. VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It allows you to "take over" the screen of your server and work as if you were sitting in front of your server. This is useful in maintaining your server, and also helping out your family or friends on their computer issues. This instructional will show how to set up the VNC server and the VNC client.
