I want to log remotely from my computer to box with Mac, when I do it with build in Mac's VNC server, user that sits by this mac can see my action. I do not want them to see it (like in windows when I take control other users can see logon screen). Is there a possibility to configure it this way ?

I want to access from Windows.

  • Depending on what you want to do, regular file sharing or SSH might be a (poor) substitute.

Could try LogMeIn, has Mac options and lets you black-out the users screen while you operate their PC...

  • Do you use it on mac or on windows because I look at logmein forum and it seems that there is no such an option for mac :( .

  • I use it on Win7 but have a client I help who runs it on a Mac & he certainly thinks it has the option. He definitely thinks he uses it regularly...

Apple's Remote Desktop product will allow you to lock the screen from prying eyes while you are working remotely.

  • Doesn't Windows Remote Desktop use the VNC protocol? That should work unless hiding the screen isn't part of the standard protocol. Jan 5 '11 at 19:23
  • @Darqer Requirements such as this should be in the question.
