Remote Connections

This section is designed to check and set up desktop sharing services available on your computer. For the remote access to work, you need to enable NEAR or Apple Screen Sharing.

OptionDescription

Allow NEAR

Enable to make your Mac controllable with NEAR, a Nulana remote control protocol.
See About NEAR for information.

Allow File Transfer

Enable to allow file exchange between this computer and the client connected with Remotix.

Allow Apple Screen Sharing

Enable to make your Mac available to control with Apple built-in screen sharing protocol.

Currently, macOS requires Remote Management to be enabled for Curtain mode to work, so if you enable Apple Screen Sharing using Remotix Agent, it enables Remote Management instead of Screen Sharing. Once enabled, Apple Screen Sharing also becomes available system-wide on 5900 port.
