command line vs gui
Authored by: robg on Mar 11, '03 11:35:54AM

Well, VNC would let you see the screen of the second machine, so I guess you could then the local screen capture to grab the screen. One potential problem with this could be scaling -- if you're connecting to a desktop Mac that's running at 1600x1200 from a 1024x768 laptop, you'll have to take a couple of pictures and stitch them together with a graphics program (if you want a full quality image).

Does VNC not shutdown when you log out? That's one of the problems with getting screenshots. If not, you could just run SnapzPro from the command line as well.

That's why the VNC distribution comes with a script to relaunch the server after you logout. The problem is when you log out the window server shuts down and restarts, and so VNC needs to as well.
