How do I connect to another computer (screenshare/capture) on Mac OS X 10.5?

  1. I want to connect to another computer and control it with my mouse and keyboard. The thing is, my computer is on a network and I want to connect to another computer that is on another network. I am confused because (for example) a linksys router starts of as and all other clients are (the "xxx" replaced by numbers). What IP Address do I type in to connect to the other computer to connect directly to it?

    In the example below, I want to connect to the computer on the IP (the IP that is on a network) with the public IP (from the internet service provider) while I am on a different network.

    What do I type in, some sort of combination of the two?

    IP Address (Public, External or WAN IP Address)

    Internal IP Address (LAN or Router IP Address)

    Step by step instructions please. Any help would be great.

    p.s. This will be a Mac-to-Mac connection, both running Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.

    Have you tried initiating an iChat and taking control via that iChat session? I have had good success doing it this way.
