Considerations for Managed Clients

If you plan on restricting what applications can open on a managed client, you’ll need
to make sure that Apple Remote Desktop’s processes are allowed to run. A managed
client is a client computer whose environment is managed by Mac OS X Server’s
Workgroup Manager.

You must add Remote Desktop to Workgroup Manager’s “Always allow these
applications” list, and make sure that all of its helper applications are allowed.

The following options must be enabled in Workgroup Manager’s legacy application
preference settings:

 “Allow approved applications to launch non-approved applications”
 “Allow UNIX tools to run”

For more information about Workgroup Manager, see the Mac OS X Server user
management guide.
