I have similar problems with ARD. I once attended a seminar who's speaker was John Detroy, one of Apple's software designers ( former, I believe.) He had mentioned that ARD was designed to have only one operational copy per intranet and that multiple copies on the same LAN could cause erratic behavior. That being said I work in a district of 5k + students and around 1.5k staff and admin users with about 20 coies of Apple Remote Desktop being used. Going to the file menu and selecting refresh usually does the trick to re-establish connections to the computers in the list I am observing.

OK, I have one ARD console and 16 clients and I assume that is not an unreasonable amount. Refreshing does not help really. Often, even when a client is shown as offline I can see physically it is running and I can observe or control it and then its status switches to available.
