To connect to a Mac you need a free Connector app available for download at top of this page. Connector is a small application and a required component sitting distraction-free in your menubar. Connector 2 is no longer available throught Mac AppStore since there are restrictions rendering this application unusable. And in case you are running OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or higher you will need to allow applications from Identified Developers in System Preferences as you can see on this screenshot.

 
Bluetooth and USB connections
 

In case you’re not on your own network and you’re using Internet Tethering through your iOS device, you will be able to connect using also Bluetooth, WiFi or USB cable. This works from Mac computer that connects to internet using your iOS device. Only this Mac will be able to see your iOS device through Bluetooth, WiFi or USB cable. It depends on how Internet Tethering is setup.

 
Connector explained
 

Connector is a media server running distraction-free in your OS X menubar most of the time doing nothing. However when one of the clients (see below) connects to this server, it will simulate either keyboard keys or mouse events based on touch gestures on your computer. You will be always asked to allow connection from such a client. All allowed clients are remembered for future use, so you don’t have to do this every time.
