    "Could not get it to work on Mac OS X 10.3.9"

    May 24, 2011   |   By nturrill

    Version: Chicken of the VNC 2.0b4

    Pros

    It has a useful function for older Macs.

    Cons

    I could not get it to work connecting from an Macbook with Mac OS X 10.6.7 to an old iMac with Mac OS X 10.3.9 using the "Listen for Server..." feature.

    "Mac OS 10 VNC client (a.k.a. viewer)"

    July 30, 2009   |   By hunter3740

    Version: Chicken of the VNC 2.0b4

    Pros

    Small and totally does the trick (for VNC server, whether Mac or Windows, and if Mac OS 10.4, can turn on the VNC in the Advanced part of the "Remote Desktop" checkbox in the Sharing System Preferences). Used it on many machines.

    Cons

    not a server (but doesn't claim to be either, so not really a con)

    Summary

    Small and Simple VNC Viewer

    Updated on Feb 23, 2010

    Just FYI, for OS 10.5 and 10.6 users, you can still turn on "Remote Management" in the Sharing System Preference; i.e. and in that settings, check to allow VNC clients...
    But as far as a viewer, go to the System folder, then Library, then CoreServices, and run "Screen Sharing"! Super simple (e.g. would have to manually port forward 5900 over 22 for stuff like that), but does the trick if you just want vnc (without any added software).

    • Resolved an issue that caused pasting text to work incorrectly if the text contained repeating characters.
