    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?
