ARDMonitor shows the state of Apple Remote Desktop (disabled, enabled, connected) - even if the Administrator asked for permission to monitor/control (that's what ARD's menu extra doesn't).

ARDMonitor comes in two flavours:

  • "ARDMonitor" - The normal faceless program which will show an icon on the right side of the menu bar.
  • "ARDMonitor unquittable" - The same as the above, but it lacks the option to quit the program - maybe useful if you're dealing with lusers.


  • status menu item
  • displays your IP addresses
  • *new in 1.4* Growl support!
  • *new in 1.4* disconnect administrators
  • *new in 1.5* Mac OS X Lion and Mountain Lion Support


ARD is enabled, NO administrator connected
