3:55 PM - Using Apple Remote Desktop (ARD) over SSH

 I had a problem with a server at work recently.  I used to use a hint from the macosxhints site to reverse ssh into my home mac.  However, I can't do that anymore because my mac is behind NAT.  What I needed was a way to connect to the mac at work which was behind a firewall (but not nat).  I had another machine running FreeBSD with SSH open.  


Connect to machine one

ssh -C -4 -L 5901: remotehostyouwant  Connect to work mac: 
ssh -C -4 -L 5900: macatwork   

location: Home

tags: ssh ard mac osx freebsd
