Remote Desktop VNC port configuration
Authored by: njpomeroy on Jan 10, '08 08:49:54AM

For what it's worth, the ARD client VNC port is fully configurable by using the Apple Remote Desktop Admin application.

The ARD client is not a standalone or general purpose VNC server, so it's not surprising that it's difficult to configure it as such. There are other free VNC servers for Mac OS that may be easier to configure than your port-forwarding voodoo here.

One final option, if you have Leopard, you can use Back to My Mac screen-sharing feature to traverse a NAT barrier if all the computers are logged into a .Mac account. No need for complicated NAT port forwarding and translation rules.

The port is fully configurable? How? All I see in ARD 3.2 Admin is the ability to enable or disable VNC when I change client settings or create a custom installer.

Remote Desktop VNC port configuration

Please show me any VNC server on the mac (other than ARD) that can display both of my 1600x1200 screen on my dual-output graphics card... that is the only reason I was using this otherwise weakly configurable client.
