10.7: A possible workaround for VNC issues
Authored by: joekewe on Oct 20, '11 09:09:03AM

Initiating a VNC connection from my iPad to a 10.7.2 desktop over a local network slowly shows the initial grey linen screen with user badges. Clicking on my user brings the password oval. I can either type a couple of characters or just watch the cursor blink a few times before the connection stops dead.

Screen Sharing app from a 10.7.2 machine to a remote 10.7.2 MBP with second, different-sized monitor works. So does a remote connection to a 10.6.8 machine. I'll try cleaning keychain entries as someone else suggested, but that won't help the iPad.

Restarting the screen sharing / ARD services per https://discussions.apple.com/message/16026896#16026896 just worked for me.
