Apple Remote Desktop and Port Forwarding on Alien


  • Does anyone use Apple Remote Desktop and using it successfully with Alien? I'm having trouble and maybe I'm not setting it up properly in Alien's Port Forwarding.

    Just FYI, used to have an Airport Extreme and ARD worked fine. I'm now setting it up with Alien for the first time.

    ARD uses ports 3283 and 5900 and UDP and TCP. In Airport Extreme, all I had to do was enter my device IP address and port numbers.

    Any help appreciated. Thanks.


  • @mistergsf Just wanted to update my post by saying this issue was resolved. Originally, after setup, ARD was not working when I tried to connect from work to home. All my settings were correct and I had no clue why it wasn't working.

    Alas, it resolved by itself. I decided to try one day while I was at the office picking up some mail and I was able to connect to my Mac at home. I don't know why? I hadn't changed or played with any settings. It just started to work.
