I am managing some computers and when in the LAN, I can drag and drop copy without issue.

However when I am remote (wan / intranet) the copy simply fails. 

I have 5900 and 3283 both set for port forwarding, and well as having opened up ssh, as I have keystroke encryption enabled, but not copy encryption at this time.


Managment is from MBP running Lion, ARD 3.6

Clients are SL imac and mini's running 3.5.3 ARD client.


Looking to see if anyone has been successful with DandD copy over the internet, or does it seem to only work in the lan ?

My suspicion is that another port needs to be open/forwarded, but haven't determined that to be the case yet.

    Works fine for me.  Can you do anything else besides control and observe?
