Mac screen sharing vnc windows

Using this method above, haven't registered "spinning circle" issue. My workaround was to run this command in order to completely prevent the login screen from appearing for VNC connections.

As soon as one of us establishes a connection to the Mac, it just shows the login screen with the username and account picture, no password prompt or buttons of any kind, and a loading spinner that just spins forever: I've found that I can "fix" this by physically accessing the machine and logging out of the account, but of course this is painful and impractical.

Just wondering, what difference does physically accessing the machine make? Wouldn't you just see the same screen with the loading spinner there? We are seeing this issue with a TeamViewer connection, by the way. I unchecked both of the boxes in "Computer Settings" and then changed the "Allow access for:" to "Only these users:" and added the users I wanted to use.

That seemed to work for me.

Run SSH on the laptop

I also updated macOS same day, so that might be it too. Brandon I am facing the same problem and tried "just updating" - however this seem to be not enough as the problem persists. This works though you'll have to use RealVNC instead. With TightVNC it claims there's no compatible security methods available. Hope that helps! Gerry Martin Gerry Martin 21 1 1 bronze badge. Thanks for the reply, Gerry! I should have clarified that I need a solution for connecting from a Windows PC to the Mac, so Apple's native Screen Sharing app is not an option for me.

Cullen, Totally understandable!

Connecting to another computer type

If that is the case, one option might be to use Google's new ["Remote Desktop" solution:] chrome. Sorry I can't be more help than that, I am still looking into solutions myself for both personal and work use. I'm getting this too and need to connect from Windows.

Living with Windows: sharing screens | Macworld

By the way, I have experienced this on High Sierra, maybe even earlier macOS versions, and still having this on latest Did not work until I rebooted the Mac. Then it seemed to not work again until another reboot. I could never get this to work consistently. Dmitry Sokolov Dmitry Sokolov 1 1 silver badge 4 4 bronze badges. Thank you!! This fixed it.
