Install and use Apple's free dual-screen VNC server
Authored by: i621148 on Oct 15, '04 12:07:39PM

you can also access any vnc server by typing
ipaddress:580x into any java enabled web browser
where x is the display where vnc is running and ipaddress is your vnc computers location.

Install and use Apple's free dual-screen VNC server
Authored by: jmdevaney on Oct 15, '04 12:17:57PM

Hmmm, all I get when I connect to http://10.0.1.20:5900 is:
RFB 003.889
in a browser window both in Safari & Mozilla on windows...

Any Ideas?

Wrong port. Port 5900 is for VNC clients to connect to. When you do it throgh the web and want the Java client invoked, you connect to port 5800 (unless the port has been changed by the installer of the service.

It doesn't really matter in this case since the Java client is *not* included with ever VNC server. It seems Apple does not include the Java client with its VNC server.
