captsaltyjack: Incorrect. The VNC server was greatly improved between Tiger and Leopard -- I suppose in the process of moving it from ARD to Screen Sharing. I haven't had any problems with the Leopard VNC server -- it works just as well as OSXvnc/Vine for me -- but I never was able to actually connect to the Tiger VNC server.

There was a VNC server built into Tiger too. It hasn't been improved in Leopard. Vine's VNC server blows Apple's out of the water in terms of speed. I tested both, and the Leopard VNC server is slow, nearly unusable.

Apple needs to seriously look at that for OS 10.6.

I can't connect to Leopard server from anything on Tiger, and Apple's Remote Desktop server is sloooow, so I'm still using Vine Server.

Now that Leopard includes a decent VNC server, I've stopped using this one.
