Remote GUI login via Apple Remote Desktop
Authored by: Virtual1 on Aug 16, '07 01:49:41PM

I have been successfully using this hint until the intels came out. I have found that on all intel machines, the "keypress return" merely causes the entire password field to highlight, rather than to proceed to login. I have tested this on over 100 machines here and it exclusively works on the 10.3 and 10.4 ppc machines. (does not work at all on 10.2 or earlier)

I have tinkered around with pressing return more than once, pressing return with the focus in other fields, various delays, etc, but have not found anything that works. Is there an alternate applescript command that will trigger the login button? Or is there a keypress for the enter key maybe? I can't find any scripting information on the loginwindow process to find a specific command to send it to login.
