Since most of our customers only have one server they manage, Apple Remote Desktop can be overkill for controlling their server. In these cases, I recommend Apple’s built in Screen Sharing capability. This service is fast, and works real smart. It also has built-in encryption of key strokes.

The one problem is that there is no way to store the addresses and logins for your machines. ScreenSharingMenulet is just the right answer for that problem.

With this menu application, you can store your commonly used addresses as well as their logins. It also will find servers that are available via Bonjour.
