    i use chiken of the vnc with a friend of mine and i have no problem getting in is computer as client but  when he tries to get in my computer he get the message from chiken "configure apple desktop to autorise vnc clients to control the screen.                   authentification type not recognise 30 33"
    He is using a 5 year old mac with tiger and i am using a mac book pro.                                        We use the exact same settings so i really dont know what the problem is...
    thanks for the help

    PS the error message is a translation of a french error message so it might not be exacly the same.

      Have you checked your Apple firewall settings (under Sharing in Prefs)? You need to enable "Apple Remote Desktop" in the services tab.

        It sounds like you're not actually running a VNC server on your machine.  Chicken is a client, not a server.  You can use Apple Remote Desktop or OSXVnc.
