You actually can switch the default port for Apple's VNC server on Mac OS 10.7 Lion and 10.8 Mountain Lion. To change the port, you need to edit the server's plist file /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.screensharing.plist (this file doesn't exist in systems prior to 10.7 Lion). Editing the file requires root (sudo) privileges. In the terminal, if ...

The ability to do traditional full screen sharing under Wayland is a missing feature, not a bug. Realistically our only option is to switch back to Xorg. Ubuntu is actually doing this: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/01/30/ubuntu_reverting_to_xorg_in_bionic_beaver/ There are projects coming (e.g. Pipewire) but it seems like a good year or so before they ...

Screen sharing in Wayland is known to be broken. You say that sharing works perfectly well in an X11 session, but you prefer to use Wayland. I am not a Wayland developer (nor a user) and cannot fix the bug. I have seen comments saying that the problem is mostly with full-screen sharing, so I suggest that you try sharing only individual windows until the ...

Although this is an old question, I've found a solution by using the PipeWire technology with Gnome DE (in my case 3.32) and Chrome (at present version 77). Check this out: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PipeWire#WebRTC_screen_sharing Just open chrome://flags/#enable-webrtc-pipewire-capture, set it as enabled and restart chrome. You'll be able to share ...

If you press optioncommandx, then the screen sharing window will go into 'observe mode', and won't accept any mouse or keyboard input. Then you can press commandtab and switch apps. I know this doesn't really fix your problem, but it's at least a quick workaround...

ScreenTask [ Answer Source ], [ Official Github Page ] ScreenTask is an open-source screen sharing application that simplifies this task for users who just want to share their screens with others on their local network. As the sharing is done over local WiFi or LAN, it eliminates the need for cumbersome signups. Once the app is up and running, it provides ...

I can confirm after finding this thread via Google that editing /etc/services for the "rfb" ports will change the included VNC server's listening ports. I edited the file and rebooted (usually I'd try restarting services or unloading the launchdeamon but I was having some other issues as well and didn't bother). iTeleport on my iPad then failed to connect ...

It won't work. Both of these ports are HDMI outputs and neither can work as an input.

The solution is named VDM (Virtual Display Manager). It works as a set of two programs: The Server program: The Client program: It works perfect, but it has a possible security flaw, depending on your desired behavior: it allows access to every window (the server side can not restrict):

This question is similar to one previously posted where Kevin Y suggested BetterTouchTool. I found this to work better than MiddleClick. Unfortunately the effect of setting a trackpad event to "Middleclick" has drastically different effects depending on the OS and program. because "Middleclick" has no function in OSX if you want to use it natively, I ...

I fixed it. It was due to Intel Graphics drivers. I updated them and now all works fine.

VNC server and client should do the job. I like TightVNC, but there are many other implementations if you don't like this one for some reason. You can setup the server to accept view-only connections without password, but remote control connections only with a password.

Yes it is possible. You need to set up port forwarding in your Router. Depending on your Router's make/model, the setup may vary, but the basics are the same regardless. I would choose a port way north of 1 or 2. Both computers will be listening on port 5900, so you'd set something up like: 85.85.85.85:15000 --> 192.168.0.99:5900 and 85.85.85.85:...

VNC does exactly this. There's dozens of different VNC servers and clients though: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=VNC

I am using wayland on Ubuntu 17.10. zoom says wayland doesn't have a protocol to share (and recommends using X11) google hangouts shows a black screen on the share full screen, and it is showing on my machine some windows (notably: google chrome and firefox, but not the gnome-terminal). appear.in shows a black screen with a pixel randomly moving There are ...

As you already have understand it it easy to steal a password on the remote computer you are connected with via TeamViewer. Form a technical point of view there is absolutely nothing you can do to prevent this password theft. Therefore I only see a possibility to minimize the risk: Before entering the password in the TeamViewer session change the password ...

I was expecting that this would be a corporate managed policy option, so I raised a ticket with IT at my workplace. They couldn't find anything in the organization-wide settings. They recommended updating Zoom to the latest version. So I updated to Zoom 5.1.0 for macOS. I updated with the version downloaded from the Zoom website, rather than the pre-...

I've been trying to figure this out for some time. I think I found something that works. It worked for me just now without having to reboot. First, go into your ScreenSharing application preferences and write down your settings (there are only a handful). Then quit ScreenSharing. Next, go into your user directory in the Finder, then navigate to Library -> ...

You can use TeamViewer on LAN. This is how to do it: You can establish Remote control sessions on your local network directly by using IP addresses or computer names. By default this feature is deactivated because software firewalls may open an acceptance dialog when configured this way. To activate the LAN mode in TeamViewer full version and ...

Not a direct solution, but the work around I used was to press: shift + fn + f10 Which is equivalent to right clicking the selected item.

I haven't tried it myself but SharedAppVnc claims to do exactly what you are asking for.

Realize this is old but I have found that killing the 'RFBEventHelperd' process using the Activity Monitor app allows Command-Tab to work properly with Screen Sharing. I have not seen any side effects in killing this process. Only issue is that you have to kill this process every time you launch a new instance of Screen Sharing. Here is the link where I ...

I would not use a LAN Remote Desktop Solution although this is possible. Better you just start a small http server on your PC and give them your IP so they just can enter it in their browser and view the files directly. However like this they have direct (read-only) control of the files and can download them. Additionally they need to go through the slides ...

Why use the desktop? I would just log in via ssh and use the 'softwareupdate' command. More information on using this tool can be found here on Apple's site.

No, because you can't control the endpoints that are connecting to your screen sharing session. Basically, even if the software you are using doesn't support them recording your session, there are other third party apps available that will do so. Privacy isn't a given once someone has access. They could record it with a phone or another device as well.

From Chrome 70+ you should be able to use getDisplayMedia to get screen stream

On the windows 10 computer, install tightvnc - ensure you give it a password during install. once installed hover the mouse over the vnc server icon bottom right to get your IP address. Remember the password. On the mac open safari and type 'vnc://win10 vnc IP address' Press Enter. Type the password. You should now see the Win10 presentation computer.

There are many options and products for sharing the screen. The simplest would be to install on both computers a VNC sharing product. One of the best is TeamViewer.

In short, no: you cannot combine the two laptops You would face multiple issues such as lack of space, lack of compability of hardware components. Instead: I would go for the laptop with the good display (which is important for day-to-day use), the SSD over a HDD which typically has higher access and write speed and upgrade/modify that one to furfill the ...

What you are looking for it seems to be a remote desktop software. You can see a comparison list on wikipedia or on specialized magazines. Among the others I should suggest you nomachine. You have to install the server version on the Linux machine (in this case it is the server because it provides the desktop service) and the client on Windows (it is from ...
