Upgrading to Apple Remote Desktop 3 gives you access to lightning-fast Spotlight searches across your network, Automator actions, a Dashboard widget, and additional features and enhancements designed to help you work faster and more efficiently.
After installing the administration software, you will need to install and enable the Apple Remote Desktop client software on the computers you wish to manage.
If you are installing the client software for the first time, you can use the Setup Assistant in the administration application to create a custom install package. If the client systems already have Apple Remote Desktop Agent version 1.2 or later, you can upgrade them from the administration application.
The Setup Assistant makes it easy to centrally upgrade the Agent software and update the client settings on one or more multiple Mac systems.
You can run Apple Remote Desktop on Macintosh systems running Mac OS X v10.3.9 or later, with a network connection using Ethernet (recommended), IP over FireWire or AirPort.
