im using the latest cotVNC in macbook pro 17" C2D, the server is on Mac mini G4 1.42 with OSx 10.4.8 and ARD 3.1
the cotVNC is really really slow, like 5 minuts to refresh the screen. the computers are connected to a router via Cat5e cable, but it tried to connect them directly, it was still too slow to do any work on.
please help me :-(
I can't help you. I am having the same problem. One mouse click took 1min 16secs just to bring a window in front of another. If I find an answer I will post it here. I posted the question on the apple forums. Good luck.
Same problem here, taking minutes to get the response from actions. Unfortunately, the only VNC client I've seen that runs worth a damn on OSX is the Java TightVNC client. What takes 30 seconds to do using CotVNC is near instantanious with the java client.
Having the same problem when I try to connect a Linux computer from my MacBook. Personly I use tightVNC. I installed tightVNC with fink: http://fink.sourceforge.net. It needs the X11 Server. The binary can be lunched from the terminal : $ vncviewer
I also couldn't stand the incredible delay with Chicken of the VNC. It really can't be network latency, since I've noticed a delay on the same LAN as other machines. It's not CPU bound, network bound, etc... it must be something within Chicken of the VNC itself.
I had about a 10-30 second delay over the internet using COTVNC. Just tried out Pierrick's suggestion of FINK + tightvnc, and it works wonderfully (less than .5 second delay with the same setup). I'll just use that from now on. I'm curious why COTVNC has such a delay problem, and I wouldn't mind if someone just put a COTVNC-type gui around the tightvnc libs.
Thanks Pierrick for the suggestion.
