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- and MAC-addresses, also computer name
- disconnect administrators (not with AppStore-Version, also does only work if the Administrator did ask for permission to control)
ARD is enabled, NO administrator connected
ARD showing your IP address(es)
ARD is enabled, and an Administrator is monitoring or controlling your computer
- Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion" or later

(If you use prior versions of Mac OS X, please visit Software Projects That Are Not Longer Supported#ARD_Monitor)
Did I mention it is free software? Download and enjoy!
Please read the Readme-file for details. Short: basically it's just free. :-)
If you think it's worth a buck, please feel free to donate one (or some) via Paypal.
- required Mac OS X 10.8 or higher
- Sandboxing sucks!
- since ARD Admin will reconnect as soon as the connection breaks, it will not work if ARD Admin knows Login/Password to (re-)connect
