Configuring Screen Sharing 0:23-2:14 Let's start by enabling screen sharing on this system. Screen sharing settings are accessed in System Preferences in the sharing category. To enable screen sharing, we select the screen sharing checkbox in the left, here. Services with a check are enabled. With screen sharing selected, we can go ahead and make some configuration changes to allow users to connect to the system. If we click Computer Settings we can change options such as allowing anyone to request permissionto control the screen. Selecting this means anyone on the network can request to control the system screen. When they do, a notification will pop up and tell you that someone is requesting access, and you can either permit or deny them. We can also enable VNC viewers to control the screen with a password. VNC viewers are special applications designed for remote desktop sharing. Enabling this will allow other systems, such as Windows or Linux systems, to control the system screen. Let's select the first option, but not the second, and click OK. Down here we can allow access for only specific users, which we can add with the plus button. Or, we can allow access for all users. Up here we have information about connecting to the computer. This address right here is the IP address of this system, and can be used by VNC viewers to connect to this computer. Other Mac OS systems will be able to see this system in the sidebar of the finder window, which will display as "TestOut's Mac." This name is taken from the computer name up here, which can be changed. Also notice that we're told that computers on our network can access the screen sharing and other sharing services, by typing this string here. "TestOuts-Mac.local" Now that we've turned screen sharing on, configured the settings, and identified the information we need, we can go ahead and close this window. Let's switch over to another computer on the network,and see how we can connect using screen sharing. Connecting to a Computer Using Screen Sharing 2:15-3:53 So we're on our other Mac system now. Now we actually have a few different ways we can connect to the other computer and share the screen. One way is to open finder, navigate to our network, find the computer we want to connect to, and click Screen Share. Another way is to use a third party VNC application to connect to the computer. But what we're going to do is use the screen sharing application built in to the Mac OS. To open it, we'll use Spotlight, type screen sharing, and press Enter. The application asks us to provide the name of the computer that we want to share screens, which is Test Outs-Mac.local and I've already typed that in, so it gives me the suggestion to auto-fill, and we'll click Connect.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
