    Hi I am trying to set up Apple Remote Desktop and Screen Sharing between my Mac Pro (home computer) and a new Macbook (white laptop).

    I wish to be able to use Apple Remote Desktop from both computers. I have had this working between an older work laptop.

    I don't seem to be able to connect to the Macbook from the Mac Pro, I cannot share the screen or connect using ARD. I enter the username and password of the account I use on the Macbook but connection takes a while and is then refused. I can however, connect from my MacBook to my Mac Pro

    If I allow Screen Sharing instead of Remote Management from the System preferences, it requires that the the user of the Macbook accepts my request to view the screen. However if using the Macbook I can connect and no permission is requested. If permission is granted I can only share screen in ARD and not control.

    The user account I use on the Macbook is an "Admin, Managed, Mobile" account. Would that have an affect?

    Hope that makes sense.

    You might have saved the wrong password in ARD.

    Are you sure Apple Remote Desktop is not running on the machine you are trying to connect to?
