I'm locked out until I get back home.
I can see via Remote Tap (a VNC for iPhone) exactly which button to press to allow me in... but I can't press it.
Marvellous. Great. Thanks.
My plan, should anybody want to try it in future, was to by default deny `screensharingd`(because of the myriad hack attempts I see daily) which I have port forwarded to my desktop, Then, using Remote Tap which I also forward on a nonstandard port to the same machine, disable silent mode in LS, allow access to screen sharing from my current location using Remote Tap, then re-enable silent mode.
Personal 2FA... now sadly only sweet FA.
