10.7: A possible workaround for VNC issues
Authored by: SteveDemy on Oct 19, '11 08:04:24AM

I had inconsistent VNC performance connecting from Lion Screen Sharing clients to Lion servers after upgrading. Failures to connect, slowdowns, hangs. Connecting from the same Lion clients to 10.6.8 servers worked perfectly. The solution, in my case was to clean up the keychains in each of the Lion macs, ensuring that only keychain entries created in Lion remained - nothing pre-migration. That completely solved the VNC problem and similar inconstancies I was having connecting to VPNs. I'm not sure which keychain entries were the culprits, but those associated with the wireless network interfaces are most suspected. Perhaps Apple's change from "Airport" to "Wi-Fi" is the underlying cause?
