Unfortunately, Apple Remote Desktop is known to be not fully compatible
with the RFB protocol which is used in VNC and TightVNC.
"Status: Security type requested" means that the viewer has sent the
security type (as defined in the RFB protocol) and waiting for data from
the server. Probably there is some incompatibility between the security
types supported by TightVNC and Apple Remote Desktop.
