Apple Remote Desktop

I have a server that I have been using ARD on for a while.  Now when I try and connect it immediately says "connection failed to XXXX".  I am connected to a Cisco ASA and I can ping the machine in question.  I have no idea why ARD is not working.  Can anyone please help?

If you get access via SSH this is the command for kickstarting ARD substitute the username for your details

sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/kickstart -activate -configure -access -on -users administrator -privs -all -restart -agent -menu

I can ssh to the firewall.  How would I try to ssh to the machine?

You could set up a rule on the firewall to pass SSH data to the server. If the server has SSH enabled you would be able to kickstart the Remote Desktop Client from the command line.

either ARD is not running on the server or the firewall blocking the required ports.
