make sure in system preferences --sharing you have ARD enabled. then go further and make sure go to privilidges and make sure "allow user" to do the following are all checked.


are you using 2.0 or 3.0? make sure in ARD you have the username and PW of the machine your trying to control entered correctly

apple should have an update (similar to the one above) for v3. Try running Software Update also to see if Apple released one to download automatically.

EDIT: After looking at this link its seems there is some Auto-Install feature with ARD 3. Something about "staging the software" to have it update your other computers when they go online.

to go from 2 to 3 you have to pay. im not sure if they both need the same version, but my guess would be that they do
