Screen Sharing not working in OS X 10.5.6
Posted on 2009-02-22
My macbook pro will not screen share to my mac workstation, however mac workstation WILL , screen share to my macbook pro.
desk.local - 192.168.1.101 = mac workstation
laptop.local - 192.168.1.102 = macbook pro laptop
I've spent hours with my laptop just right beside my workstation trying different user names, I've made my standard name admin on both machines, I've tried checking "remote management", and I've tried just checking "screen share" by itself.
I've always been able to view my laptop's screen on/from my workstation, however I've never been able to see my workstation's screen from my laptop, once I do this then I'll try over the internet, however I can't get to first base, or even off home plate.
I want to do the simply, for instance thru finder I can see both workstation from laptop, and laptop from workstation. I can connect to shared drives from both, but from finder on my laptop I cannot use the "Share Screen..." button to connect...it simply says "Contacting workstation"... with the progress bar and times out, actually I think it tries forever until I cancel it.
