Chicken of the VNC - Remote access client
Authored by: BMarsh on Oct 14, '03 01:17:22PM

I also found Chicken of the VNC to be my favourite VNC client while doing testing. I use VNC with 2 sets of parents to be able to do remote tech work 200 KM and 400 KM away. Combined with Share My Desktop to make it easy for them to turn on the VNC server, I find it a great tool.

tips: 1) while it doesn't look good, set colours for 256
on an average DSL or cable-modem connection it's pretty darn close to realtime, occasionally having to wait for some things to appear.

2) make sure the other machine isn't doing things like music streaming, file transfers etc... that might be using up the out going bandwidth, this can severely affect refresh rates.
