10.5: Use Chicken of the VNC with 10.5's Screen Sharing
Authored by: RickyB on Nov 23, '07 10:43:03AM

Personally, this drives me crazy. I was using Vine Server with Tiger. This worked much better remotely since it could accept lower bit-depths and thus provided a much better (smoother) experience from afar. Now the Leopard server only accepts the highest bit-depth when I try to connect with either RealVNC or TightVNC, so I have to wait a full 1-2 minutes just for the initial desktop image to appear. With Vine Server the desktop would load in about 2-4 seconds. I wish someone would figure out a way to overcome this limitation or I might switch back to Vine Server (even though I would rather not have additional processes running the background if I don't have to).

10.5: Use Chicken of the VNC with 10.5's Screen Sharing

If someone comes up with a cross platform implementation of the Screen Sharing app, it will be much better remotely - from what I can tell - than just lowering the colors. Apple's VNC implementation seems to use an intelligent algorithm to determine how much data to be sent... it's the fastest VNC client/server I've seen.

For me, I installed Vine Server along side. I use the default OS one for local stuff and Vine remotely from my Windows machine.
