Apple Remote Desktop 3.7.1

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released version 3.7.1 of the Admin and Client editions of Apple Remote Desktop, adding support for OS X 10.9 Mavericks, improving the reliability of the kickstart command line utility, and fixing the “Display full screen” option in Control & Observe preferences. The update also improves support for Macs with multiple displays and multiple IP addresses, adds automatic copy and paste between local and remote computers, and improves reliability of screen sharing sessions.

Additionally, the remote desktop management software fixes a bug that caused the OS X firewall to block Remote Desktop connections. Apple notes in a support page that if you previously lost access to Remote Desktop after updating to version 3.7, restarting the client computer after installing version 3.7.1 should automatically add the correct firewall rule. Finally, Apple has updated the app’s companion Dashboard widget to version 3.7. ($79.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update via Software Update (12.9 MB) or as separate Admin (19.6 MB) and Client (5 MB) downloads)
