slow to operate

    When working with CotVNC, is it normal for windows to take several seconds (2-6) to open and close?  Dragging items, opening apps., etc. are all very slow.  If this is normal, I'll get used to it.  If it's not, I'd like to know how I can speed things up.

    I have a static IP, port 5900 open and forwarded to the appropriate router IP, etc.  It's just slow.

    Any help is appreciated.

      I made a new profile (from the Connection menu) + just changed color to 256 colors. You're then looking at the server in only 256 colors, but is a major speed up.

      If I have to see full color, when temporarily switching back to the default profile, I notice the speed as you describe.

        Wow! Thank you.  For me, it seems that 256 and Thousands run about the same.  Very much of a speed boost though.

        Thank you!

          VNC is a very "heavy" protocol, in both bandwidth and CPU utilization.  You can also play with your preferred encodings in your Chicken connection protocol.  They trade between CPU usage and bandwidth usage.

            Is there somewhere that tells me what all those encodings do?  I have no idea what I need and don't need.

            Thanks, again,
