Currently Being ModeratedOct 1, 2005 7:53 AM (in response to Zane Mcelroy)ARD only operates on 5900 according to page 49 of Apple Remote Desktop 2.2 Admin Guide.
Currently Being ModeratedOct 4, 2005 11:53 PM (in response to fahlman)Hi,
despite what the doc pretends, would someone know how it would be possible to tweak a little bit this one port limitation ?
I'd like to know how to control two servers which are in the same office behind a routeur. I can tell the routeur to forward my connection to different machines according to the connecting port (I can tell, if connecting on port 5900, forward to port 5900 on this machine, and if from 5901, forward to 5900 to this machine).
But is there any way to tell remote desktop to connect to the routeur to the 5901 port ?
Thanks for your help.
Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2005 1:11 PM (in response to Michel ROCHE)I don't believe that the ARD client itself can be set to listen on a different port, but you could run a third-party VNC server (such as OSXvnc) on the workstation, set that to listen on port 590x, and then follow these instructions to connect from the ARD administration app:
Remote Desktop 2: How to specify a port number for a VNC client
Hope this helps.
Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2005 1:34 PM (in response to varjak paw)Hi and thanks for your update, that's what I tried indeed.
But my problem is that I have to join the same IP adress at two different ports, and ARD seems not to like so much having 2 times the same computer in its list.
Anyone to infirm this last assertion ?
Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2005 7:45 AM (in response to Michel ROCHE)Unfortunately, I don't have any info to add, but I am keenly interested in finding out how to change the port numbers as well. My proxy at work will only allow specific ports--5900 is not one of them.
