Apple Remote Desktop Guest Access

You can configure an Apple Remote Desktop client to give temporary, one-time access
to an Apple Remote Desktop administrator who does not have a user name or
password for the client computer. Each time the Apple Remote Desktop administrator
would like to control the client computer, he or she must request permission from the
remote client’s user.


Granting access to control a screen is the most powerful feature in Apple

Remote Desktop, and can be equivalent to unrestricted access.
