Is there a way to disable Apple Remote Desktop in OSX?
Open System Preferences and click the Sharing panel. Uncheck Apple Remote Desktop.
Don't know about Jaguar because I can't remember if there is a setting or not.
Unfortunately, I am not the admin, so I do not have access to the sharing pane.
Sorry, then no. If you are a limited user you won't be able to even kill it from the Terminal without the admin password.
Then how do I get the admin password?
you dont, thats the whole idea.
osx is secure
You ask the administrator of the machine for his/her password.
Seriously, how do I get it?
That's serious -- you ask the admin of the computer for their password. If you're not an admin user, then you need to find an admin user and explain to him what you want to do.
I'm assuming this isn't your home computer -- perhaps a computer at school or work, right? If so, then the reason you don't have admin privileges is so you can't do exactly what you're trying to do.
If this IS your home computer, then that's some strange setup you've got there.
Ask the administrator for the password. OR to disable the remote.
It is possible to reset the password without it, but it is not ethical. Whose computer is it that you are using? At home, in school etc?
