I'm connection using Tiger and cotvnc v2.0b3 and get an error
connecting to RealVNC server on XP regarding unknown ZlibHex?
encodings... going back to a previous working version now.

    Please post the actual error message here, and anything reported by /
    Applications/Utilities/Console.

    In the meantime, it sounds like you could probably work around this by
    disabling ZlibHex in your connection profile.

    Also, what version of RealVNC server is this, and what version of XP?

    OK, I'm getting the same error. The error states:

    Connection Terminated

    ZlibHex unknown subencoding 121 encountered

    I created a profile without ZlibHex and received the same error.

    The console log is as follows:

    I'll post a follow-up with the info regarding RealVNC being connected to.

    I'm connecting to a machine running XP Pro SP 2 and RealVNC v.3.3.7

    The error occurs when I'm connect to varios versions of uvnc for example
    1.01, also.
    You can temporaly avoid it when you disable the ! ZLRE !protocol.

    I can confirm this bug in 2.0b3 with the OSXvnc (1.5) and
    WinVNC servers and confirm that disabling ZLRE encoding.
    Disabling ZlibHex won't resolve the error.

    I had ZlibHex Unknown Encoding 58 error on a TightVNC server. Disabling
    any components in the profile did not help.

    However, changing from "Let server decide" to "Thousands of colors" in
    the color settings did help.

    I also am experiencing this problem connecting to an UltraVNC 1.0.1
    server on Windows XP. http://ultravnc.sourceforge.net/

    Disabling zlib and zlibhex in profiles seems to make no difference for me.

    However, like someone else suggested, changing to thousands of colors
    did fix the problem.
