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
  • displays your IP addresses
  • disconnect administrators (not with AppStore[1]-Version)

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).
