|distributed.net Faq-O-Matic : the Client software : Automatically starting the client at boot time : MacOS|
MacOS client distributions include an AppleScript that you can place in your Startup Items folder to cause the client be launched and the "Hide dnetc" option in the Applications Menu to be automatically activated. The client is still visible and can be re-activated from the Applications Menu however.
Alternatively, if the MacOS FBA (faceless background application) version of the dnetc client was distributed with your MacOS download, then you may use that version. The FBA version completely lacks any user interface at all, and will not even be visible from within the Applications Menu.
Newer distributions (2.8012.466+) of the client for MacOS may include a client that runs as a system extension. This enables the client to be launched before the finder starts and run without a user interface.
