"As good as sitting in front of the keyboard"
Version: Vine Server 3.1
Based on LAN use only...
Very fast. Robust and reliable. Very easy to set up and install. Most (if not all) client-side functions work out of the box.
None so far
Super! The logic board on my MacBook Pro (Leopard) died so I was forced to connect remotely. I set up Leopard's built-in VNC server that's part of Apple Remote Desktop (ARD) to connect from a VNC client on Windows XP SP3 on my LAN. What a frustrating experience. Leopard's ARD VNC is painfully slow and very frequently stops responding regardless of which VNC viewer I use. I finally became fed up enough to look for a different solution so I installed Vine Server 3.12 and I'm thrilled I did. First and foremost it's very reliable, I haven't had to reconnect even once since I started using it a week ago, whereas with ARD I needed to reconnect at least once every 5 minutes. In terms of speed and responsiveness there's no comparison really. If ARD is a Chevy Aveo then Vine Server would be a Corvette. Functions such mouse-wheel scrolling and ALT-TAB task switching work without any additional configuration. I'm now using my Mac again for almost all my work because Vine Server is fast enough that there's not much difference between using the VNC viewer and sitting right right at the keyboard. That's really the best endorsement I can give since that's ultimately the goal of any VNC software.. if not for the pointer being a dot instead of an arrow I could easily forget I was even using VNC.
"Product title does not match the description!"
Version: Vine Server 3.1
Server is freeware, viewer is trialware.
Free VNC server!
I don't know why this CNET download page is allowed to exist. The description is for a different product than the title product. The server is FREE. The Viewer is not. They are two different products. You can use any VNC viewer, including Windows viewers. This is a Mac only set of products!
"Scam alert! This is not free, it's only a trial."
Version: Vine Server 3.1
No pros that I could find.
No install options, had to clean up my system manually including removing firewall changes. This program also caused problems with my internet access.
I recommend avoiding this program.
