distri Level 1 Level 1



  I'm trying to use Screen Sharing from clients using with different users , but it seems to works using diradmin user only.

In the server System Preference the screen sharing users are set correctly.


Running operating system is OS X 10.6.7 .



Any idea ?


Kind regards,

    What are the System Preferences > Sharing > Screen Sharing sharing settings on the target clients?  Restrictive?


    If not, then is there anything in Console.app console logs around the time of the access error?


    WAG: Run a repair permissions pass, on the off chance there's a protection error.

    First of all I forgot that the systems is OSX 10.67 Server. Sorry about it...


      System Preference > Sharing > Remote Management setting are for specific users, but if set for all users the

    behavior is the same.


       I run  "verify permission" from Disk Utility and I've found a relevant message


       " Warning: SUID /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/ARDag ent/" has been modified and will note be repaired.

    I was not able to find any message on logs about this problem.

    In server admin, click the server in question.

    Click the "Access" button at the top of the window.

    Make sure you're looking at the "Services" tab.

    Click the "For all services" button.

    Click the "Allow all users and groups" button.


    If it's already set that way, then there's a problem with your remote desktop client application on the computer.
