Install and use Apple's free dual-screen VNC server
Authored by: jmdevaney on Oct 15, '04 12:33:28PM

This does not seem to work on the Apple VNC Server, port 5800 just gets connection refused... Am I missing something? I know this works with OSXvnc..

Port 5800 feature not implemented

The port 5800 trick actually connects to a web server that dishes up a Java applet VNC client. This works on the official version of VNC, and some others like TightVNC, but it doesn't appear to work with either the Apple Remote Desktop or OsxVNC. At least, I just tried with both and couldn't connect.

Port 590x is for when you're using a Client Application to connect to the server. Port 5800 is for when you're connecting through a web browser.
