    Hello all,

    I'm a network Engineer and I need some help with Mac Server. My backround is in a Windows environment and now I have to do cross platform support and administration, Mac/Windows.

    I have Mac OS X Server 10.4.2 running on a iBook G4 and I would like to know how to enable and configure remote desktop on the Server so I can remote desktop into some iMacs in the network. :cool:

    I will also probably be asking more questions as time goes on. The next thread will be on how do I send an image to client mac pc's over the network from this G4 notebook, but for now I need help on how I can configure my notebook to use remote desktop on to other client eMacs.

    Thanks!!!


    Can anyone help me???

    Sorry, I don't know much about this sort of thing.
    Does This Guide have any relevance or offer any help?

    Thanks for the reply. I did some further research and discovered that if I want to administer other Macs through remote desktop my company has to purchase the remote desktop admin from Apple.

    :eek:

    Anyone out there know how to image Macs over the network?

    You may find this link useful. The developer of CarbonCopyCloner discusses the deployment of MacOS X in a lab environment.

    OSXvnc and Chicken of the VNC are free and will allow you to set up a solution for remote login. Depending on your needs you might be able to do much with a text login shell using ssh.
