ARD 3.2 sees black screen when controlling Leopard Server

I have used ARD 3.2 on my MacBook Pro running Leopard in the past to observe and control an Xserve on the same subnet running Leopard Server. I see the machine with the scanner (where it says it's running ARD 3.2.1), click the machine and then control and a window will pop up for the smallest amount of time and I can't possibly read it. I right-click the machine and go to "Control" and it pops up a large black screen rather than what's running on the Xserve. The Xserve is sitting at the login prompt, freshly rebooted. What should I do to get this working? Thanks!

Try clicking the 3rd (or 4rth) button in, that looks like 4arrows pointing outward from the center.

I've seen some strange issues with ARD from time to time.

Next, I'd suggest that you restart the ARD client on the Xserve.
Connect via ssh and use the following instructions:

I have to admit that the problem went away - the server was struggling to do a firmware update, but it had been rebooted a few times.  Thanks anyway!
