Let VNC viewers connect!
Authored by: hmichaelt on Oct 10, '13 09:40:49PM

Hallelujah! That certainly hits the spot!

I usually connect, from various machines, of various vintages, to one running Lion (10.7.x) using either Chicken 2.2b2 (descendant of Chicken of the VNC) or—much more reliably—JollysFastVNC. The great difficulty of using Chicken seems, thanks to this hint, to have been completely reversed. Before, connecting with Chicken required numerous attempts—with each one requiring a very studied entering of the relevant keystrokes s-l-o-w-l-y, the tedium of the login window, usually followed by the need to re-enter the password to get past the screensaver. After making the relevant change suggested in this tip, connecting now seems to be reliable, simple, and direct, even with Chicken. I'm very grateful.
