As an Admin for several servers – I'm disappointed that OS X Screen Sharing client is broken in Mavericks. None of my alternate solutions have worked.

Figured that Remotix was worth a try -- and WOW -- IT WORKS. Despite the $39.99 price tag, Remotix is amazing.

Easy to configure, lots of connection options, amazing quality, low latency, maintains connections, option to store machine profiles and sync with iCloud, and even password protection.

Remotix is the VNC/Screen Sharing app that Apple SHOULD have written.

BRAVO to the Developers -- $39.99 IS A BARGAIN.

I don't mean to detract from your review, but Apple's OS X Screen Sharing client and server both work perfectly fine in 10.9 and 10.9.1 Mavericks, and have from day 1. I use them extensively every day. They also work fine with non-Apple computers via VNC.

I am glad that for your firewall and security settings – that Apple's native VNC is working. For many admins in many situations they are not. Apple's Community has many robust discussions, and no definitive solutions -- my reason to favor Remotix -- which apparently is unaffected in the same environment where Apple VNC fails. As always -- your mileage may vary.... Thanks for your comments.

Yep, I gotta agree with Wizard2 - Apple's built-in Screen Sharing, while awesome for local machines, doesn't work at all when trying to connect to a remote machine over SSH. Frankly, given what you can do with (or *TO*) another machine using VNC, I wouldn't dare leave one open naked on port 5900 to the internet, or you're practically begging for trouble. So I tell people (like, say, my mother across the country) who need my help and whose screen I need to control to turn on SSH in Apple System Preferences, then I connect to VNC over that...which Screen Sharing CAN'T do, but Remotix CAN.

I've been trying the program for the past few days and really like it. I had been using JollysfastVNC and was looking for something that could do both VNC and RDP. This fits the bill. However when I went to pay for the program, the price is not $24.99 as shown on this MacUpdate page but $39.99. The difference is big enough to make me pause. I may still buy it, or I may install UltraVNC on the windows machines so I can use JollysfastVNC to control them. In any case MacUpdate should update this page to show the real price of this app.

I've been using this for a while. It's getting better with each release. I have occasional problems connecting to Windows machines and usually CoRD will connect.

I have yet to test in version 2.1.1 but if they can enable the higher encryption levels in newer versions of Windows that would be awesome.

Yes you can. Please download a free 15-day trial on nulana.com to see how it would work. Remotix has a built-in Help.

Purchased this one and it does pretty easy to use and install as described. However, I found the following issue:

I am connecting a Thunderbolt Drive to my Macbook Air and I am using it as a dedicated music server.

And I am using another Macbook Pro to control the server remotely.

The problem with Remotix is:

I used to using Mac's default Screen Sharing function to connect the two computers. The screen resolution and response are quite good. The scrolling functions of up and down the screen response on the remote computer is nearly quick as the master one.

However, while the macs are connected via Remotix, the scrolling of up and down on the remote computer response very slowly -- each swipe moves two to three lines only, no matter what screen resolution I set.

I have thousands of CDs on the music server. You can imagine how intolerable it is while scrolling the iTunes screen under Remotix.

I have sent the developer my query for many days. And so far no reply at all, no even a note saying that my question was received. A bit disappointed as many users here said that answers were quick.

I am going back my original Mac's Screen Sharing setup.

Really regret the money I wasted.

Just bought the macupdate promo and updated to version 2.0.2. This version works as expected and has a lot of nice feature.

I didn't find a reason why version 1.2 wasn't working on the same computer.

Great app. Droid version lagging behind but very promising. Unfortunately I purchased through the app store and so this version (1.0.3) isn't available yet. This is the last time I will purchase anything through the app store if I can avoid it - they are just too slow to allow updated versions. Also didn't get the discount because of that.

Developer got right back to me regarding the droid version so I am impressed.

@smallpoxxx,
Here's the download link someone from Nulana sent me:

They apparently have two versions. This is the one your registration code will work with.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
