View Full Version : Screen sharing not working with 10.6.4

I have used Screen Sharing via the "Back to my Mac" feature of MobileMe for a while, always without problem. I'd use it all the time to control my home computer from my work. Now after updating the computer to 10.6.4 the screen sharing stopped working. I can access the drives and volumes on the computer, but can't do a screen sharing. I can access the other MacPro that is on the same network but has 10.6.3 fine, without any problem. Any ideas how do I do to fix this?

I can't speak to Back to My Mac, but certainly Screen Sharing between 10.6.4 machines seems to work normally.

Turn screen sharing off and back on again.

Tried that and it didn't work...

Also tried connecting without the Back to My Mac and accessing it through the network instead. No go either.

Also, just realized that I can't even access the volumes. I thought I had been able to do that this afternoon but apparently not.

I can actually access the volumes on it through Back To My Mac, but not trying to connect via Finder>Go>Connect to Server... Very frustrating

Well, I thought you were able to connect to network volumes, which killed my first suggestion. Since that isn't the case, try this.

1. Open Activity Monitor
2. Force Quit "NetAuthAgent"

This should solve your problem.

Back to my Mac problem uses a different authentication scheme for file shares.

Hmmmm... The plot thickens... LOL

I don't have that running... Here's a screenshot of my Activity Monitor:

Is AppleVNCServer running (it should be)? Try killing that if it is. It should be restarted automatically.

Didn't work either... :-(
