10.5: A number of ways to access Screen Sharing
Authored by: Morwen on Oct 31, '07 11:59:33AM

I have my home firewall passing thru calls to VineServer via a different port than the standard 5900. I can connect to it (its a Tiger machine) from work (Leopard machine) with Chicken of the VNC just fine.

At home, on the home network, finder see's my Vineserver machine and connects right to it with screen sharing, I'm assuming its seeing it via bonjour since I don't have Remote Apple Connections turned on...or its recognising the vineserver?

At work, tried to run the screen sharing app to connect to tiger machine, it doesn't even connect to the box. Tried vnc:\\hostname.domain.com:xxxx (port) Does it not recognise the port command?

---update---

Hmm...tried launching it from Safari instead of finder like someone else pointed out you could do, and it DID connect from there. Bizarre.
