Connecting to Desktop Sharing

When someone connects to Desktop Sharing on your machine, you will get a pop-up notification that looks like the following screenshot, unless you are accepting unattended access without confirmation.

Desktop Sharing Connection Window

If you Accept Connection, the client can proceed to authenticate, which requires the correct password for a login. If you Refuse Connection, then the attempt to connect will be terminated.

The Allow remote user to control keyboard and mouse check box determines whether this client can only observe, or can take control of your machine.
