Remote Dekstop

This snippet shows you how to remove all Apple Remote Desktop settings. My ARD installation recently stopped working correctly, having problems discovering new machines and connecting to already set up machines. These commands wipe all settings and the ARD installation is clean again. This solved my problem.

Recently I removed all Google Ads from this site due to their invasive tracking, as well as Google Analytics. Please, if you found this content useful, consider a small donation using any of the options below:
