Screen sharing through the app has been shoddy at best for me since updating. I thought I had it figured out and now its not working this week. My device on the same network is a linux machine and connecting to it from ssh works fine (always has). But for whatever reason the screen sharing functionality is Broken. I’ve tried to connect to server using vnc://x.x.x.x or smb://x.x.x.x as well as without the slashes.
I’ve tried to connect using the Screen sharing app as well. There is a weird 3rd option that sees my computer but it NEVER works to connect to it.
So Far I’ve tried to restart the machines and this:
- Launch the Activity Monitor program.
- In the Process Name list, look for "NetAuthAgent". It may show as "Not Responding".
- Select NetAuthAgent, and then click Quit Process (the red stop sign button at the top of the Activity Monitor window). Then, click Force Quit.
Your Screen Sharing should now work.
But that is from 2008 so I know there’s no way that they didn’t fix that by now.
Bottom Line: How can I fix screen sharing to this other device, for Good?
