    Apple Remote Desktop & "Use Remote Task Server"

    Just posting this in case any of you have come across it and knows any possible solutions...

    1x X-Server (running OSX Server 10.5.8 and ARD3.3.2). ARD is configured to allow remote connections so it can be used as a Task Server.

    Whenever I try to tell my iMac (running OSX 10.5.8 and ARD3.3.2) here in my office to use the X-Server as a remote task server, nothing happens. As soon as I hit "select", it immediately just greys out and reselects "Use Task Server on this computer". I've tried inputting the remote task server (the X-Server) by IP, and by FQDN, and by drag-n-drop from the RD Scanner window. No difference.

    DNS is working perfectly, lookups resolve in all directions & the X-Server isn't running a firewall...

    Any suggestions?

    Are you using the same cd key for both? We found that the task server needs to have a different key to the ard sending jobs!

    Thankyou! That'll most likely be the issue, yes (and DAMN! We only have the one )
