A little off topic, but there is an ARD look alike for Windows. Never used it, but have always had it bookmarked as it looked kewl. http://italc.sourceforge.net
Turning on VNC access for Windows I never thought it was encrypted. Wouldn't trust it if it not encrypted.
italc is interesting, but it doesn't support Mac, so it doesn't solve my issue.
VNC is not anymore a solution since Apple changed his VNC auth : VNC clients are not aware about it.
And I don't want to install an additionnal VNC server.
No idea ?

it seems like some people are having some luck with vnc://user@address
and some times rebooting vnc on the mac helps:
- ssh into client
- sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/k ickstart -deactivate
- sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/k ickstart -activate
And there is always Apple Product Feedback.
And you could try realVNC.
Dear Teen Titan
- Mac authentication is not handled by realVNC.
- Restarting an application don't change a feature.
- adressing the user in the URL, if no authentication module is installed, have no chances to help.
- Feedback is totally usefull. If I thinked about it, Apple won't have stop xserve, they will have implemented zfs and they will have made an agrement to let us able to virtualize Mac OS X Server on Dell and HP servers. Sorry for the Apple strategy, it's my fault : I didn't explain to Apple what an enterprise need.
So please, save your time and mine, read the question before to reply

I have not found (previously) a fully compatible ARD/VNC client for Windows that handles the new Mountain Lion connection method. I will have a look at the Remotix you mentioned which I did see why it was not suitable for yourself.
However what I do use that works for Windows users, is to have the Mac running Apple Remote Desktop Admin to also have installed RealVNC Server configured to share the screen via a different port number so as to not conflict. I then on the PC use the RealVNC client to connect to the RealVNC server. This uses a username and password and is an encrypted connection. Once the PC is connected it can use the ARD Admin software to control other Macs.
Yes this requires installing an additional VNC server - but only one copy and if it is the only solution available you have to stop complaining and use it
My company uses the meraki dashboard system manager networks to manage the computers. The client can be pushed out via (AD Active Drectoy, or ARD Apple Remote Desktop) to your windows computers and you can support the windows from a mac using eihter web browswer or built in VNC viewr."screen share" also, from the windows side you can support macs by using the the untra VNC application. its very easy to setup and it works. we support companys with 10-400 computers in mixed enviruoments. this was one of the biggest hurtels we had to endevor.
I hope this message finds you well.
Supposedly now Remotix has fixed the keyboard mapping problem for international keyboard layouts. This is as of version 2.0.2 released in December 2013. I have not yet retested this issue.
International keyboard input
No headache entering text in multiple languages. Remotix fully supports international and multilanguage keyboard input.
