The blurb straight from www.logmein.com:
“LogMeIn lets you access your Windows PC from anywhere in the world. All you need is a computer connected to the Internet. You see your Target PC’s full desktop and control everything on it—applications, network files, email, printing—without the hassle of further downloads or installations. You can even share files that are too large for email. There’s no need to lug around a laptop, because LogMeIn lets you access your PC from an internet cafe, an airport, or a hotel business center. You can even print documents you’ve accessed remotely.”
Some of the features listed are only included in the “Pro” version (see their product comparison page), but using only their free service you can easily access your computers running Windows or Mac OS X. To get this running on Yellow Dog Linux for the PS3, all you need to do is install the Java plugin for Firefox. There’s no messing with firewalls, port forwarding, or other security concerns — just create an account over at www.logmein.com, install the host software on your PC or Mac, and head to the login page from your PS3 (after installing the Java plugin). The initial startup process takes a few moments while the Java plugin loads., but that’s all there is to setting up the connection.
Once you’re in you can click on the Advanced option on the menu bar and select a resolution to match what you’re running on your PS3, then click on the Full Screen option. For example, I’m able to access my Windows XP machine full screen on my PS3 at 1280×720. This is how it looks when I’m running my CAD software on Windows and accessing it from my PS3 using my LogMeIn Free account (click on the thumbnail for full size image):
