Make remote tech support as simple as possible
Authored by: wallybear on Mar 08, '07 02:52:03PM
to call the application in your bundle (assuming you put it in Content/Resources):

set kVNCserver to quoted form of POSIX path of (((path to me) & "Contents:Resources:OSXvnc-server") as string)
do shell script kVNCserver & " -connectHost " & kyour_ip & " -connectPort " & kPort & " -rfbwait 5000 &> /dev/null

Where, as previously said, kyour_ip is your IP address, and kPort the port to be used.

Doing so, you can put your app everywhere you like and your client has only to double-click it.

This is how my wrapper app looks like: http://www.jaw.it/img/rass.jpg
As said, I won't post it until I'm sure about vnc licensing.

OSXvnc seems to be under the GPL, at least as listed at http://sourceforge.net/projects/osxvnc

I don't know if the GPL nature of OSXvnc requires one to release the code for any GUI wrapper for it.
