OS X Mavericks: Allow access using Apple Remote Desktop
If you are sharing your screen and Mac using Remote Desktop, you need to turn on remote management in Sharing preferences.
- Open Sharing preferences if it isn’t already open, then select the Remote Management checkbox.
- Do one of the following:
Select “All users” to let all users on your network connect to your Mac using Apple Remote Desktop.
Select “Only these users,” click Add (+), then select the users who can share your Mac using Apple Remote Desktop.
- Click Options, then select the tasks remote users are permitted to perform.
- Click Computer Settings, then select options for your Mac. If people connect using a VNC viewer, you need to set a password.
Apple Remote Desktop is available from the App Store. For help setting up and using Apple Remote Desktop, see Remote Desktop Help.
