headless Mac remote access too slow

Recommended Posts

Something like one of these might help:






If your mini has nothing hooked up to its HDMI (or any other video/monitor) port, then it won't use graphic acceleration for screen display. That in turn means that when you remote into it, its screen/graphical interface can be quite sluggish and slow down the whole computer.


The above-linked items are tiny HDMI plugs that fool the mini into thinking it has an HDMI monitor attached, which will enable the graphic card acceleration and make remote access/screen sharing more usable.


This might not be your problem, but based on what you've written, it sounds like it might be, or at least might be a contributing factor.
