I've been using the native screen sharing feature to control my Mac Mini HTPC from my Macbook since Leopard. I realize that this feature has some changes incorporated into Lion--when I attempt today after installing Lion on both machines, I received the option to either Ask to share the display or Connect to a virtual display. I first attempted to Connect to a virtual display (see you desktop and files) as this appeared to be how it was previously done with no luck--option box disappears with no screen sharing window opening and after about 30 seconds, the dialogue box reappears. I was able to connect using the Ask to share the display but it requires permission be approved on the Mac Mini--defeats the purpose of screen sharing with the Mac Mini if I have to go turn on the TV and give permission and I see no option to automatically approve in preferences. I have not changed any of the settings that I previously used in SL and made sure screen sharing was enabled on both computers. I can see both computers in each other's Finders (though when attempting to connect from the Mini to the Macbook, the Macbook states 'Not Connected' or 'Connection Failed.' As far as I can tell, I've mirrored the sharing settings on both computers and as mentioned, had not changed anything from SL. After having no success, I even turned on Back to My Mac on the Mini (wasn't previously turned on) just in case but still no luck opening a virtual display. Anyone have any thoughts on what I'm missing/doing wrong? Any help is greatly appreciated.
