Apple Remote Desktop for Mac Labs

Apple Remote Desktop (ARD) must be configured separately for each user on each computer he or she plans to use (e.g., each professor on Tyler 103, 105, and 107 tech carts). The room file should automatically insert an admin username (e.g., tyllabadmin) and password into the application.

  1. Open Apple Remote Desktop.
  2. Select Agree.
  3. Enter your new password twice, then click Continue.
  4. Leave the task server field blank, then click Continue.
  5. Select Done.

To import a room file into Apple Remote Desktop:

  1. With Apple Remote Desktop open, select File > Import List.
  2. Select Desktop and choose the room file you want to add (e.g., "TYL-103.ardencryptedplist").
  3. Type the Archive Password (provided by I.T.) for the corresponding room.
  4. Select Open.
  5. Allow any permissions, if prompted.
  6. Click Advanced Options.
  7. Make sure the following options are selected, then click Add.
