Both the AC and Power Steering high pressure hose are over there (I can't tell which one from the pic).

Follow the leaking hose back to either the compressor or power steering pump to find out.

It's the hose on the right that's leaking. I also noticed the hydraulic reservoir (marked Pentosin) is low.

The leak seems to be where the "hard" line connects to the rubber line. Is this a common problem? What are my options?

Thanks!

Sounds like a power steering leak. Hopefully, an easy fix if it's just the junction of the two lines. You might want to get a can of Pentosin CHF 202 (recently superseded the older CHF 11S) to top up the reservoir until you get the leak fixed.

Thanks on the oil tip. When the engine is on, I can see the leak drip...so it's probably best that fill it up and not drive it until it's fixed, huh? Anyone change one of those connectors before? Special tool required?
