Setup Screen Sharing Remotely - Mac Os X

Today, I found myself needing to enable screen sharing on a Mac Os X (running 10.6.8) machine via SSH. Apple does a good job at letting admin users enable various services via the command line (pretty much all services) so I set off to find the command. While googling around I found a short post on gigoblog.com with the command I was looking for.

sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/kickstart \
-activate -configure -access -on \
-users admin -privs -all -restart -agent -menu
