Periodically my screen sharing stops working. When I try to connect nothing happens. telnet 5900 connects but I don't get the normal "RFB 003.889" prompt back. reboot seems to resolve it, but it stops working soon. I tried killing SCreenSharingAgent and it restarts, but still doesn't work. Any advice on how to make it work remotely via ssh?

(11.4.2 Darwin Kernel Version 11.4.2)

  • 11.4.2 relates to which OS X version? Do you have physical access to the computer of which you want to access the screen? – nohillside Oct 5 '12 at 7:03
  • @patrix sorry, I assumed kernel version maps to OS X version. It is 10.7. Yes, I do have physical access. – MK. Oct 6 '12 at 2:09
