I’m setting up a new imac that is in a public area, and I would like to be able to use it remotely, securely, without local users having access.
I was thinking that a screen saver that would require a password would be a good way to get this done, but it appears that VNC is unable to shake the computer from saving its screen… so to speak.
SO. I’m wondering if there’s any way to fix the most obvious problem: getting VNC to wake up the machine. OR, if there are other clever ways to have the Vine server running, be able to control the computer unrestrained remotely, and require the entry of a password to manipulate the computer locally.
I don’t particularly care if people have access to the machine locally while I’m accessing it remotely… that’s a manageable risk.
