10.7: A possible workaround for VNC issues
Authored by: spinkb on Oct 19, '11 10:13:12AM

Starting with 10.7.2, if I try and connect to my main iMac using screen sharing, it just sits there trying to connect...no response. About 30 seconds later, the machine kernel panics and reboots. I sat here with my laptop next to me and tried it, then for 30 seconds browsed the web, pinged machines, etc...machine seemed OK, then the kernel panic and reboot.

10.7 had issues where the "vnc://" in the Finder didn't always work too...completely different machine I had those issues on.

So, screen sharing and VNC with it in 10.7 are quite unpredictable, unreliable...and now downright dangerous. Who would expect a kernel panic for doing VNC? The kernel panic is new as of 10.7.1 or 10.7.2...not sure which.

Beware...
