Have an iMac running Tiger. I have Chicken listening on the Mac and tried to connect to it from a PC with Real VNC. It seems to connect, but I never get a screen. I will get a message on the PC that I am connected to the Mac if I try to shutdown the PC, but there is no visual evidence of a connection.
Is your Mac behind a router? If so, have your configured port forwarding in the router so the VNC connection can reach your Mac?
Nope... on the LAN, about 5 feet away on my bench.
The next thing to check is the Mac OS X Firewall in System Preferences: Sharing (Tiger) or Security (Leopard).
Firewall is set to allow all
Can you connect from Chicken to the PC?
