"Fantastic update"

August 20, 2009  |  By mekanik1_dotmac

 |  Version: Apple Remote Desktop Admin 3.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Apple has finally brought ARD up to speed with this update.

Everything is fast. Window behavior has been fixed, windows stay in the background if they reconnect, instead of popping up and stealing focus. The network scanning happens in seconds, not minutes.

I couldn't be happier with this update. It really feels like a whole new application.

"Scanner works"

December 13, 2005  |  By afterhours

 |  Version: Apple Remote Desktop Admin 2.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
We've seen no issues where we have had to admin customers using ARD 2.2 on a network that is properly configured with properly-configured clients. We have seen malconfigured switches, firewalls and all manner on nonsense on poor network installations, but ARD has been rather seamless in operation (scanning included).

"ddd"

 |  Version: Apple Remote Desktop Admin 2.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
The program hangs when scanning and quits.
The scanner is not very efficient and does not scan all macs when a network range is specified.
DHCP clients are hard to locate and since the scanner is not very efficient, you have to phsically goto the client computer to get the ip address.
The client systems should have a user name and password. If the password field is blank on the client system then you cannot authenticate using admin ARD.
There is still no update from apple regarding these problems.

"\"Wow\" Factor"

 |  Version: Apple Remote Desktop Admin 2.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
ARD has it. No problems encountered so far connecting to OSX server and all networked computers. Success also connecting remotely over the net. One of the few apps that give a real thrill to use -- so, okay, I need to get a life.

"ARD is a fine application, thus far"

October 21, 2004  |  By spollak

 |  Version: Apple Remote Desktop Admin 2.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've just started using ARD to administer Macs via the Internet. My clients are located around the world. Frankly, I'm delighted with ARD so far, especially with the screen "Control" function. My clients tend to have 256k upload speeds, and I 4MB download. Regardless, I can control the remote machines pretty darn well.

"Finally"

OK, I agree that drag-and-drop copying would be cool, but let's please admit that this is one of the finest sys admin tools available. Thanks especially, Apple, for going with VNC!

...product!

I agree with the previous poster about the need for drag and drop capability to and from remote computer.
Otherwise, this is really an excellent product and has made ALL the difference in the world in the management of all the macs here, both local & remote....truly a great tool in many ways! Thanks!

"Game Over"

September 14, 2004  |  By Bill Cerniuk

 |  Version: Apple Remote Desktop 2.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This version started out able to run but after applying some security updates to my laptop, it does nothing but crash. Sometimes it displays a list of machines, other times it crashes right upon launch. The crash is always the result of it trying to access memory outside of its address space. On the other hand, Timbuktu has been a solid performer since 1986 and works across both high speed and lower speed lines. I was not impressed when this product was called Apple Network Assistant on Mac OS 9 and I am less impressed on Mac OS X now.
