Well this problem went away with 2.0-b1 but it came
right back with 2.0-b2. See <a
href="http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=787943&group_id=64347&atid=507159">bug

    I believe that this is fixed in CVS for 2.0b3, but I don't have a little-
    endian server to test against. If you're down for it, please pull CVS and
    test.

    Pulled CVS HEAD at 2004-12-13, I'm still seeing red and blue
    swapped :(

    Please post the messages that are logged to console when you connect to
    the problematic server. You can find these by opening /Applications/
    Utilities/Console.

    OK, I just test the latest MAIN branch (I assume -- I pulled
    down the latest with no TAG), and tested against RealVNC 4.0
    on both a PC (running Windows XP SP2) and a Sun (Solaris 9).
    Both were running in 24-bit mode.

    No problems.

    Can you please post any log information from TightVNC
    showing what TightVNC thinks the connection is set up for?
    Also, what does your connection profile look like? Also,
    what is the depth and size of the monitor on the remote PC
    (I assume it's a PC).

    If you can narrow it down to what time of encoding is being
    used, that would help (I created a profile for each encoding
    type and tested each one individually).

    Sean, note that this bug is against a server running on _Linux_ on a
    little-
    endian machine. The original bug referenced above gives more details.

    I see the red-blue switch connecting to a tightVNC server on 'Blue' Hat
    Linux. It happens with the 2.0b3 release version of cotVNC as well as the
    latest from CVS as of 1/6/05. VNC gives me probably a 10x speed
    improvement over X-forwarding due to the high latency of my connection
    (about 200ms round trip ping) so I will probably use it even with the color
    inversion. Is there somewhere in the code I could easily force a reversal
    back to the real colors in my local copy?

    jjdmon, I don't know where the bug is occurring, otherwise, I'd have
    fixed it. :)

    And I don't have an intel linux box to test against.

    Some things to try for a work-around. In Chicken's Connection Profiles
    window, play with the Color settings. Specifically, try switching between
    "Let Server Decide" and "Millions of Colors".

    If you want to play with code, search the code for color "shift" values.
    I'd be interested in finding out anything you discover.
