    Erm, you should change the title, remote access has nothing to do with a remote control.

    I'm not seeing the setting according to the instructions you linked?

    Even when I search for Infrared from within System Preferences it guides you to the Security & Privacy panel and to the page noted in the article, but the option for me (13" rMBP) is simply not there.

    What version of OS X are you running? Click on the link for the version you have. The instructions are pretty simple.

    Actually, retina MBPs don't have an IR port. That's why you don't see the option.
