The password is required

It seems that this is still a useful hint dispite its age. In trying to duplicate the oringinal hint's setup, I found that the password entered in the Apple Remote Desktop setup on the target system is required when logging in with Chicken of the VNC. Without the password, I consistently got authentication errors. With the password, I got right in. I'm using Tiger 10.4.10 on both machines and CotVNC 2.0b4 for remote access.

I would like to remotely access my Mum's computer however, I don't want to embark on this solution if there are any compatibility issues. I have an Intel Core 2 iMac running 10.6.8 and Mum has a 2005 G5 PowerPC running OS X Tiger. Will this solution work for this combo?

Whilst I'm fairly 'good with computers' I'm not really at 'geek' level and the solutions here look a bit scary! Would I be better looking for a piece of off-the-shelf software to do this? Many thanks.
