Re: Installing Apple Remote Desktop on Snow Leopard

To use Apple Remote Desktop, install the administration software on the administrator computer first, and then install and enable the client software on the computers you want to manage. To set up Apple Remote Desktop on administrator computers, you install the software on the computer you plan to use to administer remote computers. Then, you open the application setup assistant, and add to the main list of computers.

Now before doing this, make sure your system meets the following requirements:-
  • Mac OS X or Mac OS X Server version 10.3.9 or later (Mac OS X version 10.4 or later is required for some features).
  • Mac OS Extended (HFS+) formatted hard disk.
  • For observing and controlling other platforms: a system running Virtual Network
  • Computer (VNC)-compatible server software.
  • Mac OS X Server version 10.3 or later with NetBoot and NetInstall services enabled
  • Ethernet (recommended), AirPort, FireWire, or other network connection

Re: Installing Apple Remote Desktop on Snow Leopard

To install Apple Remote Desktop on an administrator computer just go through these simple steps:-
  • Insert the Apple Remote Desktop installation disc.
  • Double-click the Remote Desktop installer package and follow the onscreen instructions.
  • The Remote Desktop application will be installed in the Applications folder.
  • Launch Remote Desktop (in the Applications folder).
  • The Remote Desktop Setup Assistant appears.
  • Enter the serial number.The serial number can be found on the Apple Remote Desktop Welcome document that came with your software.
  • Click Continue.
  • Enter a Remote Desktop application password and verify it.
  • The Remote Desktop application password is used to encrypt names and passwords of client computers for Apple Remote Desktop. You can store this password in your keychain for convenience, or you can require that the password be entered each time you open Remote Desktop.
  • If you have another unlimited-licensed copy of Apple Remote Desktop acting as a Task Server (a dedicated computer running Remote Desktop for report data collection and delegated install tasks), enter the server address and click Continue.
  • Set the default data collection scope and time for newly administered computers.
  • These settings will be stored as the default upload schedule, which can be applied to computers when you add them for administration.
  • Click Done. The main application window appears.
  • Configure some client computers for administration, find them in a scanner, and add them to a computer list.
Thats it!!!

Re: Installing Apple Remote Desktop on Snow Leopard

Apple Remote Desktop is the best way to manage the Mac computers on your network. Distribute software, provide real-time online help to end users, create detailed software and hardware reports, and automate routine management tasks all without leaving your desk. If you are sharing your screen and computer using Apple Remote Desktop, you need to turn on remote management in Sharing preferences. If you are not aware of doing so, just go through this:-
  • Choose Apple menu > System Preferences and click Sharing.
  • Select the Remote Management checkbox.
  • Do one of the following:
    • Select ?All users? to allow all users on your network to connect to your computer using Apple Remote Desktop.
    • Select ?Only these users,? then click Add (+), and select the users with whom you want to share your computer using Apple Remote Desktop.
  • Click Options to specify what capabilities users will have when accessing your computer.
  • Click Computer Settings, and select options for the computer that will be shared.
