Applications :: Using Apple Remote Desktop / Screen Sharing

May 15, 2009

I am trying to set up Apple Remote Desktop and Screen Sharing between my Mac Pro (home computer) and a new Macbook (white laptop).

I wish to be able to use Apple Remote Desktop from both computers. I have had this working between an older work laptop.

I don't seem to be able to connect to the Macbook from the Mac Pro, I cannot share the screen or connect using ARD. I enter the username and password of the account I use on the Macbook but connection takes a while and is then refused. I can however, connect from my MacBook to my Mac Pro

If I allow Screen Sharing instead of Remote Management from the System preferences, it requires that the the user of the Macbook accepts my request to view the screen. However if using the Macbook I can connect and no permission is requested. If permission is granted I can only share screen in ARD and not control.

The user account I use on the Macbook is an "Admin, Managed, Mobile" account. Would that have an affect?

OS X :: Sharing Desktop With A Client Using Windows?

Jun 3, 2009

I'm looking to share a presentation with a client who's using Windows XP.

Skype has a beta version for Mac and Windows that has video conferencing features and a screensharing feature, but Skype is a complicated program for computer novices... the very people I'm presenting to over 600 miles away.

I'm looking for a free solution that works cross-platform. I must be able to share a presentation and communicate using audio. Video conferencing features are a plus.

OS X :: Networking - Windows 7 Desktop With File Sharing But Not Home Group On

Nov 28, 2010

I bought a Mini yesterday and am attempting (read: failing) to set up my home network. Here is what I have: Netgear WNDR3700 home network with a WPA2 wireless network. A Windows 7 (completely updated) desktop with file sharing but not home group on. I have even deactivated my windows firewall while attempting to set this up. A Mac Mini running OSX 10.4 with Windows Networking activated

I originally hoped to plug my mac mini in and, while I was quickly able to browse the web, I was less than successful in accessing my shared files that are on my windows 7 machine. I then deactivated the homegroup and simply "shared" the folders via right-clicking and sharing to all users on the network. I am unable to see the mac mini when opening up the network which was the first sign of trouble. I have all of the file sharing options on Windows 7 and Mac Mini checked (network discovery, etc.) but do not have any luck. The farthest success I have reached was I manually entered the ip of my windows 7 pc on the mac mini and while I saw the shared folders, they were empty. Note: I do have identical user accounts set up between the two computers, with the same user name and no password.

OS X :: Apple Remote Desktop - ARD Box In Sharing Preference Of Machines

Feb 4, 2010

I've just started to use ARD and have it installed on my Admin computer running 10.6.2. I'm aiming to control macs on different OS'. I seem to be able to work ok with machines running tiger but leopard and panther aren't working correctly.

I'm not sure if its because I need to create a new account on the machines to use in conjunction with ARD, I've seen this done before in apple tutorial videos. Does anyone know if this is the best way to implement the system or can I check the ARD box in the sharing preference of my machines?

Applications :: Recommendations - Screen Sharing Application That Works On Both MAc And Windows?

Nov 10, 2009

I'm looking for a good application to use in my small business for screen sharing and conference meetings. I use the feature that Skype have brought out extensively, but there are times that I need to share my desktop with multiple viewers and often in environments where Skype is prohibited.

I have found several free applications out there that look promising, I just thought I would ask advice on here first to see if anyone here knows this software and if there are any recommendations - both free and paid software.

OS X :: Best Option For Remote Screen Sharing?

Mar 2, 2010

I am trying to figure out what the best option is for remote controlling my computer. I've used LogMeIn Free, which is a great option, and I really like that I can use any web browser from any computer, and even my iPhone to remotely control my primary desktop computer.

I've also used Mac's built in to access my various computers using the Back To My Mac, which is also a great option.

I guess I would just like to find out if any better options exist. I do not like that the Mac's built in doesn't permit me to view my remote desktop "Full Screen".

I do not like that LogMeIn seems like little more than a PC ported application made to work with a Mac as an after thought.

IMac (Intel) :: Can Remote But Have Screen Sharing Turned Off?

Jun 19, 2014

We have iMacs and Macbook pros at work but we need to connect to them from home. I am not concerned with getting a VPN connection. That part is taken care of. Problem is I need a client such as a Windows Remote Desktop Connection. Where if I connect to the Mac from home it just allows me to use the session and not take up a lot of bandwidth for screen sharing. People in the office do not need to know what project i'm working on.

Windows On Mac :: Windows Sharing Formatted Drive

Jan 16, 2009

I have a PC, and a macbook. I also have an external harddrive, formatted for mac. What I would like to do is plug the external hard drive into the PC, and share it over the network so that I can access it wirelessly from my macbook. The problem is that windows does not recognise the drive, so I cannot share it. Any mac-drive-formatted reading programs only read the drive from within the program, so I still can't share it.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Remote Management Status Icon In It When Screen Sharing?

Jun 12, 2012

I recently upgraded from Leopard to Snow Leopard. Unfortunately this disabled the remote management status icon in the menu bar? Any way to get it back? Before when I "screen shared" this computer the remote management status icon would appear in the menu bar, now it's gone. I tried enabling remote management but I can't authenticate when I try to connect from my Leopard PowerBook.

Windows On Mac :: Parallels Desktop Or VMWare Fusion For Windows 7 RC?

May 7, 2009

I'm having pretty bad difficulties with Windows 7 and Parallels Desktop. I know it's not supported yet, but some folk have it working. I can boot up, but I can't install Parallels Tools. I changed the Configuration to "Windows 2008 Server" like someone suggested in another forum, but fails to boot up.

Seems like VMWare are offering a better helping hand than Parallels Desktop - and while it is not supported yet by them, they say that if you use Windows 2008 Server Config everything works apart from sound.

So am I best giving it a bash with VMWare's Fusion? 30-day trial for free. But I'd rather try get Parallels working since I paid for it.

Windows On Mac :: Why Windows 7 Folders Showing Up On OSX Desktop

I just installed Windows 7 via Parallels Desktop on my Mac. I used to have XP SP3 before this where I had it setup that no folders from Windows would show on the OSX desktop, but now that I've installed Windows 7, the folders from Windows are showing on the OSX desktop again. I forgot how to configure this, so can anyone please tell me how to do this?

OS X :: Screen Sharing - Remote Mac Goes All Black (even "in Person") And Needs Power - Down?

Jul 5, 2009

I VNC to my iMac all the time (usually from iPhone with Jaadu, sometimes from another Mac with Leopard's Screen Sharing function: Connect to Server vnc://....) But lately it only works for a couple of days. After that, the remote computer's screen goes black and accepts no input. (But I can see/move the mouse cursor.) Once I get home from whatever trip I'm on, I then see that it's the same in person: all-black, no response to clicks or keys. I can move the mouse but I can't do anything at all. There's no solution except to force power-down.

For security, I run the "Computer Name" screensaver with password lock. The first time the black screen appears I see just a flash of the password dialog and then it's gone. After that, I never see anything but black (and the mouse arrow). The remote computer is NOT crashed, because it accepts the VNC connection request and password, and because it keeps churning out work from Folding@Home (which I can see on my stats page). But after a day or two away (maybe one VNC session per day) the screen and input are gone. Anyone else see this? (The only two changes made to that system lately: a new version of EyeTV software--but it's not recording or anything. And the 10.5.7 update. I'm guessing it's something new to do with 10.5.7.)

Windows On Mac :: Black Screen With Underscore At Top Left Corner / Booting Into Windows 7

Oct 11, 2009

This only happens when I choose to boot into windows. The screen sort of hangs for about 20 seconds in a black screen with an underscore at the top left corner before even starting to boot into windows. I know its normal for this to happen for like 5 seconds tops, but this is happening for about 20 seconds and its dreadful trying to boot into Windows 7 because it takes so long. When windows is done starting up i don't even get any messages saying startup failed or something like that. This is so annoying that I even reinstalled everything but the same thing happened.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Application For Administrators That Can Provide Both Remote Wipe And Remote Desktop?

Apr 9, 2012

I'm looking for a system that can track about 50 MBP's providing both remote wipe as part of an overall security protocol, and also remote screen/desktop for admin purposes. I looked at but it looks like they only do remote wiping/tracking. that I don't want something locked to a single user, it should be centrally managed.
