    Lion already includes a VNC Server: Screen Sharing.

     

         System Preferences, Sharing.

     

    Be sure to also click on Computer Settings, VNC viewers may control screen with password.

    Yes, it is included in Lion, but it does not connect anymore from other VNC clients. It is because of the

    "multi-user screen sharing", it broke the VNC!!!

    Then you may want to try different VNC clients because I can connect just fine with the original VNC client (v3.3.9, the one from IBM labs) from a Windows XP machine and a Windows 7 machine.  Both to the user currently logged on to Lion ("normal" VNC control) and a background user (multi-user mode.)

    I'm using Chicken Of The VNC, as well as two iPad apps- Connect To My Mac and RealVNC.

    Have you tried turning off screen sharing in system preferences and test again VNC?if not then what you are experiencing may just be expected

    a group of people are also experiencing the issue at the moment

     

    Apple has its own built in VNC so maybe its in conflict with its own?just a thought

    Interesting, I tried that. I had been set to use Remote Management, which I unchecked and went back to vanilla Screen Sharing (with a VNC password), but was getting the same result.

     

    Maybe I'll turn everything off and try again with SS & VNC.

    I am using Chicken of the VNC (not working, the screen shows the login screen and freezes), on PC I use Real VNC Enterprise and the same thing happens.  It's interesting that iTeleport for iOS has a new update that corrects this DESIGN FLAW.  I cannot understand why beta testers never submitted this...

    I've found that if I use RealVNC and set it the option "Only use protocol 3.3", then it works without freezing.

    Not working for me.  Real VNC Enterprise from Windows Server 2003 to Lion, the darn thing moves around with the pointer but cannot type the password or press Enter.  I guess the whole point of VNC control is down the drain for a while.

    not working for me either from XP via VNC - tried ""Only use protocol 3.3"" but this didn't solve anything

     

    interestingly in the system log, after I try to connect with VNC (nothing else) I see the following - there are some logmein lines in there for some reason (also noting logmein is busted under Lion for the moment too...)
