comment What is the OS X / BSD equivalent of the GNU “ps auxf” command?
-1 - seems somewhat incorrect. if it is right, please support your answer with more details on how to install using these package systems rather than just mentioning the package management systems (esp. MacPorts )

Where would this be added on Ubuntu? perhaps /etc/default/snmpd or /etc/init.d/snmpd or elsewhere?

Not sure if you saw that I mentioned Out-of-band management in the question? You are correct that I'm looking for a way to control machines remotely that were not intended to be managed remotely. I do not have a specific problem at hand but was curious if it was possible, easy, and/or common to do this. It seems like it could be handy / useful in a lot of scenarios.

Yes I think expecting cheaper and something that would allow connecting with one of the RDP protocols or maybe provided an X server.

Thanks, I did see that was available but my when I mention "normal computer" in the question I meant computers that are not specifically purchased for this purpose. Also, not sure if Macs have the Intel vPro available...
