Enable Server Scaling

OS X Screen Sharing server also provides a Server Scaling option, in addition to image quality adjustment.

When you are viewing the remote desktop at the reduced size, Remotix shows you the scaled image. In common case Remotix gets the full-resolution image over the Internet and then reduces it to the smaller size. With server scaling enabled, OS X Screen Sharing server will reduce the image before sending it to you, thus reducing the network traffic.

The server scaling is enabled by default on all Mac-based connections.

To disable server scaling:

  1. Start a remote control session.See Control or observe a single server for detailed information.
  2. Choose View > Disable Server Scaling in menu.
