ARD kickstart

my brain cell is overloaded, i can never remember this.

from apples’ support page, here’s how to blow ARD access wide open:

sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/kickstart -activate -configure -allowAccessFor -allUsers -privs -all -clientopts -setmenuextra -menuextra yes

of course one should lock down access to secure a system, but sometimes when you’re trying to resolve an issue remotely, it’s best to open things up completely, and remove functionality to achieve the proper security…
