10.7: Multi-user Screen Sharing
Authored by: palahala on Nov 06, '11 07:11:28AM

Creating a local SSH tunnel works for me. Enable Remote Login (aka SSH) in System Preferences Sharing, and in Terminal run:

ssh -NL 5901:localhost:5900 localhost

Finally, use Screen Sharing to connect to localhost:5901 (instead of the default port 5900).

However, this is extremely slow on my MacBook Air. Also, one should be very careful not to open a Screen Sharing session to the current screen: that will get one an endless Droste effect...
