Currently Being ModeratedSep 25, 2009 1:54 PM (in response to Steve Jolly)Sorry but no, ARD cannot transmit sound. I'm not aware of any remote-control app for Mac that can (other than iChat which, to the best of my knowledge, you can't connect without user intervention on the receiving end).iMac 2.8 Core 2 Duo 24" 4GB ATI 2600, Mac OS X (10.6.1), PowerMac G5 2.0GHz DP, Dell w/ Windows Vista Unlimited SP2, several others VM
Currently Being ModeratedSep 28, 2009 1:32 PM (in response to Steve Jolly)Still hoping for a bolt-from-the-sky easy solution for this, i.e., a remote-control app that DOES transmit/replicate sound from the remote Mac.
For now, what I've been doing is (as pointed out above) using iChat -- logging in on the remote machine using ARD, turning on iChat on their end, clicking through an iChat connection on both ends, then monitoring using iChat at my end. It's kludgy and time-consuming, and it takes awhile for the bandwidth utilization on iChat to fully utilize the released bandwidth when I quit the ARD connection, but it works. Sort of.
C'mon, if MI6 and the CIA can do it to us, we can find a way to do it to ourselves... suggestions?2 GHz dual g5 and various Intel Macs, Mac OS X (10.5.8), also running Snow Leopard on Intel machines
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 8, 2010 10:42 PM (in response to Steve Jolly)My own comment gave the best solution so far:
Use Apple Remote Desktop, take control of the remote Mac whose sound you wish to monitor, launch iChat at both ends, log into a session at both ends, and then either play media on the remote end to allow you to hear media or software sounds, or activate a listening device such as a mikeon the iChat camera to hear ambient sound at the remote Mac's location.
