Applications :: Remote Desktop Connection From One To Another Mac

Dec 14, 2010

Outside of VNC and LogMeIn, is there a way to remote into another Mac from a Mac? I've found a lot of results regarding remoting into a Mac from a Windows PC, but not from Mac to Mac.

OS X :: Remote Desktop Connection Over WiFi

Dec 5, 2010

I'm trying to set up a RDC over WiFi. Both laptops are on the same WiFi network. I installed the latest RDC sw on my mac and I'm logged on as an admin on the other laptop which is running Windows XP. From My Computer > Properties > Remote > 'Allow remote assistance etc' is ticked. From the 'Advanced' tab I also ticked 'Allow this computer to be controlled remotely'. I temporarily switched off the Zone Alarm firewall on the Windows laptop. I launched RDC, I type in the IP of the Windows laptop (which is a generic 198.162.x.y) but nothing happens. I even tried to type in the laptop name but nothing happens either. The RDC cannot find the laptop. I checked that all the services starting with the word 'Remote' on the Windows based laptop have been 'Started'.

OS X :: Remote Desktop Connection With Proper External IP?

Dec 16, 2009

I got my mac pro in england and right now I am in denmark sitting here with my macbook pro trying to control it. I setup Logmein client before I left which is working fine but the lag is annoying me, and I was wondering if there was a better solution so, I enabled "remote desktop" on my macpro and sitting here with apples Remote desktop trying to connect to the IP of my place in england (not the internal, the proper external) and as usual I can see I can connect to it, as its a public "student" residential area, I know I cant access the router but I also know they have not blocked any ports including the 5900 port which is required.

So is it my "DNS" which is blundering? Coz I can see when I make the remote desktop under the sharing tab, does it not create a dns "submask" - and if thats true. When I put that in to DNS I still cant connect any fancy or fantastic solutions? I don't mind a browser based client such has logmein, but one with a more "fluent" use would be wonderful, as i wanted to work on it live.

OS X :: Remote Desktop Connection - How It Works For Graphic Stuff

Dec 6, 2010

I have a studio with a nice desktop with 3 screens. Trouble is, through the winter I'd rather be working near my fireplace. I could move the desktop, and have this huge monster in my pretty room, or I could hook up one monitor to my laptop and use remote desktop. So my question is... how is remote desktop for serious work? Mostly graphic stuff, layout, etc. Would I need an upgraded router for it to work well (currently have only an a/g airport express, maybe need a/g/n?).

Software :: Remote Desktop Connection To Multiple Macs On Network?

Feb 10, 2009

I'm trying to use Apple Remote Desktop to connect to multiple Mac's on a remote network. I've set the remote network's firewall/router to open up the ARD-specific ports for all the computers I want to connect to. I've also set each computer to accept Remote Management. On my ARD however, when I enter the network address of the remote network I'm trying to get to, I can only see ONE of the enabled computers, rather than all.

Applications :: How To Remote Desktop Access

Jun 16, 2010

My boss is going on a two week long tour, starting tomorrow, with her MacBook Air and I wanted to be able to assist her should she need any technical help on the go.

The only options I know for Remote Desktop Access are ChickenVNC and Remote Desktop from Apple, but both are a bit complicated depending on the connection you are using. Also, she wouldn't understand how to find her specific IP address, when on a hotel Wifi connection.

I was wondering if any of you have a suggestion for software that is extremely simple to use and would allow me to assist her through screen control, by having her simply opening and/or logging into the program.

Applications :: Using Apple Remote Desktop CD?

Jul 1, 2010

This is gonna sound crazy, but last weekend I found a Apple Remote Desktop 3 (still in shrink wrap) in a parking lot. I don't really know anything about it. I have not opened it. It is Apple Part #: MC172Z/A, Version 3.3. It has a "unlimited managed systems" sticker on the front. Is this the complete software, or is there more that goes with it? I have done some research and just got more confused about 'administrator and client' software. Just wondering what I have here without opening it.

Applications :: Using Apple Remote Desktop Shortcuts?

May 9, 2009

I am a network administrator for an environment that has both windows and mac systems. I personally use a MacBook Pro for all of my admin duties. With Microsoft's RDC I can save the connection to each machine as a file and drag the folder containing those files into the dock to create a stack for quick access. My question is, is there any way I can do something similar for the Mac connections for Apple Remote Desktop, so I don't have to launch the app, then go to the machine I want to connect to?
