ARD for non-local machines??
Authored by: tji on Feb 19, '08 03:02:27PM

I have a VPN connection back to my parents' house, but I don't know how to initiate an ARD connection while not local.

When I'm at their house, I see their iMac in the Finder, and can select 'share desktop'. But, to do it remotely, I can't find how to initiate Apple's client.

I can use "Chicken of the VNC", and it works okay. I just think the Apple client is more network efficient.

How do you initiate your connections?

ARD for non-local machines??
Authored by: bagelturf on Feb 19, '08 07:10:36PM

I saw this hint:

Just use SSH for this, it's really simple:

Starting under Leopard:

sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ –restart –agent
(yes, I know, but really, restart is the way)

Stopping under Leopard:
sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ –stop

The command is the same under Mac OS X 10.4, but the path may be a little difference inside of CoreServices, IIRC.

In Leopard I've been manually opening up the Screen Sharing app and just typing in the the hamachi IP of the machine I want to control.

/System/Library/CoreServices/Screen Sharing
