It took me awhile to find out that Tiger and Leopard both have different names for remote access management. Tiger has it as Apple Remote Desktop while Leopard has it as Remote Management. To enable it, do the following …
1) Click the
apple logo on the top left
2) Choose system preferences
3) Click sharing
Apple Remote Desktop (for Tiger) or
Remote Management (for Leopard)
5) Click options button, choose the checkbox that says access via password, then set your desired password.
6) To check if it works, open up a VNC Client (Chicken for the VNC is a good one for Mac) then type in the I.P. if the PC you will be connecting to plus the password.
If ever you want to enable Remote Management via command line, do this (in Leopard)
sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/kickstart -activate -configure -access -on -restart -agent -privs -all
Make sure remote login is enabled in sharing so that you will be able to access via SSH.
That’s it. Happy VNC-ing.
