Chicken of the VNC - Remote access client
Authored by: markuswarren on Oct 14, '03 09:08:08AM

I have used VNC for quite some time now, and I love it. I too use VNCViewer 2.01, but will also check out 'the chicken' again, would be good to use 'tight' VNC too. I use RealVNC on most of my W2K servers here and my Mac Servers, and also on most of the desktop machines (both mac and pc), it's just great for managing machines. Even better when you consider i also have it on the machines in our UK and US office, plus at my parents house in the UK. mmm, I love the power!

RealVNC on OS X???
Authored by: Brock Lee on Oct 14, '03 11:27:38AM
Do you really use RealVNC on OS X? The FAQ claims you cannot:
Is there a version for Mac OS X?

Not for the current version 3.3.7. However, since Mac OS X is Unix, it is much more likely that we will be able to provide a proper port of the standard VNC codebase in a future release.

RealVNC on OS X???
Authored by: quentinsf on Oct 15, '03 10:40:58AM

If you have X11 on your Mac, it's pretty easy to compile the 3.3.7 vncviewer to run under X. It's fast, too.

RealVNC's new 4.0 betas didn't compile out of the box, but should do so without too much tweaking.

trouble with Chicken of the VNC
Authored by: TokyoJimu on Oct 15, '03 04:20:52AM

I tried Chicken of the VNC a few months back and could get nothing but a blank white screen when connecting to VNC servers.

I now use VNCviewer 2.01, but I must say that I'm not totally pleased with VNC (server or client) under OS X.

Especially on the server side, where sometimes the real screen starts acting funny, or every time I click on something in the dock it's as if I clicked "Show in finder".

I sure hope the RealVNC people decide to support the Mac.
