Overview

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.

Features

  • status menu item
  • Notifications[1]
  • displays your IP- and MAC-addresses, computer name and serial number[2]
  • disconnect administrators (not with AppStore[3]-Version, also does only work if the Administrator did ask for permission to control[4])
  • launch utility-apps (new in 2.0)[5]

Screenshots

  • PPC or Intel CPU (Universal Binary)

There is also a version in Apple's AppStore available, but that one lacks capability to disconnect administrators due to because of the Sandboxing-Restrictions... (see here).

Help



  1. requiring Mac OS X 10.8 or higher
  2. new with 1.9
  3. Sandboxing sucks!
  4. since ARD Admin will reconnect as soon as the connection breaks, it will not work if ARD Admin knows Login/Password to (re-)connect
  5. Meaning, you can add you favourite apps to the menu, so your lusers can easily reach them! See ARD Monitor FAQ for more information on how to configure.
  6. including Mac OS X 10.7, 10.8, 10.9 Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks)
