Vine Server - login screen


The app that I need to test with Eggplant is a login plugin app. So, I have several tests that I need to test gui logins.

Whenever I logout of a ‘remote’ mac server running vine server it kills vine server. So, my question is how do I load vine server on mac so that it is more of a ‘service’ i.e. it loads up at boot time and makes the ‘gui login’ screen available for controlling. And does not die when I log out.


You can run Vine Server as a service enabled at boot by going to the Vine Server -> Startup -> Start System Server. You will need to have root or admin access/password on the SUT in question.

That worked. Thanks.
