I have two macs. I want to be able to log in remotely from one to the other without needing any unix commands. I bought a mac so I wouldn't have to use cryptic commands!  I want it to appear as though I am at the console of the other computer. How do I do it?  The sharing option on each computer tells how to enable remote login, but it is very confusing about how I accomplish remote login from the other computer. It tells me to type "ssh" followed by the computer name, but gives no clue as to where I am supposed to be (what application) when I type this in. I did go to the unix command ssh but when I typed in "ssh" followed by the computer name it just came back with another prompt. I don't know what it wants me to type in.

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.6.8), The other is a Macbook Pro
