Manage the VNC / screen sharing password remotely
Authored by: Alrescha on Nov 16, '07 08:06:47AM

"It seems that the "new" screen sharing feature is basically the same as 10.4's, and the VNC password is in the same place"

It may be worth mentioning that the new screen sharing doesn't require or use this file unless you have also specifically enabled the VNC password for use with VNC clients.

Can this command be sent via "Send UNIX command" in ARD 3 Admin?
I tried , but received :

/bin/bash: line 1: $: command not found
/bin/bash: line 2: 7F513D02E4A8C5E2FF1C39567390ADCA: command not found
/bin/bash: line 3: $: command not found
/bin/bash: line 4: hello: command not found
/bin/bash: line 5: $: command not found

I cut and pasted the code from the Hint; perhaps that is the issue?

Yeah, it would appear the stuff you copy/pasted is the code and the (example) responses.

Oh, and only enter the code that is after a $, but not including the $.
