Currently Being ModeratedDec 5, 2009 9:59 AM (in response to Eric Maier)screen sharing works correctly here with several computers using google DNS servers. works both over a local network and across internet.Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Mac Pro 2.66GHz, powerbook G4 1.5GHz
Currently Being ModeratedDec 5, 2009 10:19 AM (in response to Eric Maier)If you change the DNS settings on your router it shouldn't affect screen sharing, if you change the DNS settings on each Mac you put the google DNS as primary and secondary and your routers IP as a third and everything will work fine.MacMini G4, MacMini 1.66, MacBook Pro. iPod touch, iPhone 3G, Apple TV, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 5, 2009 6:38 PM (in response to kdb1)It's very likely it may not be a problem in all configurations; I put my DNS server settings in my router (Dlink wired gaming router), which is connected to a Dlink ADSL2+ modem and I guarantee having Googles as both pri & sec caused this problem on my network. It's repeatable & consistent.
I use screen sharing quite a bit, it can be very tricky to troubleshoot. I posted this to give folks who may be having problems with screen sharing one more thing to try.iMac CD/MacBook CD/MacBook C2D/MacPro8x2.8, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
