Thank you for any suggestions!

 

I need to regularly check with another Mac that has a static IP and is always running. Both machines run Snow Leopard and I use the command Connect To Server in Finder to connect to VNC://….

 

So far I managed to ask for confirmation and have someone in the location confirm to establish Screen Sharing, but I have not been able to do the same without asking for permission first.

 

I don’t want to use the first option By asking for permission

but the second option As a registered user.

 

The error message is:

Authentication failed to “server

Please verify you have entered the correct name and password.

 

Does the user who wants to establish the connection have to be a different one from the one who is currently logged in? I have tried both, the same user and a different registered user on the machine.

 

What else could I do differently?

 

One is a Mac Pro and one is a Mac Mini both run 10.6.8


Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
