ImageI had a friend write today asking how he could setup a Mac to share it’s Bonjour services over the internet. He had tried a VPN, but it was not very reliable. I recommended ShareTool.

With ShareTool, it’s as easy as starting up the application and pressing Share. From there, the service is configured. On other Macs, you’ll open the app and click “Connect” then enter the ip and port number of the sharing Mac. Now you can access like iTunes folders, Screen Sharing, etc. It couldn’t be more simple.

In addition, there are other benefits. All transfers are encrypted. If the file is large, it is compressed on the fly.

ShareTool costs $20 and can be downloaded from the YazSoft site.
