    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.)

    Out of curiosity, are you using a 3rd party VNC?if so, what's the name

    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

    hi,

    solved:

    problem was thaht i'll set remote manage. Now after set screen sharing all work fine, with real vnc viever Enterprise 4.58 on win XP) also.

    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.

    my steps:

    on MAC - screen sharing setup: set all users - computer setup: set ok only on vnc with password

    (i've tested that with everybody admitted checked, latency increase and MAC desktop login is locked)

    (note: login is in two step: login on vnc popup and on mac desktop with local user credentials)

     

    on Ipad (real vnc  viver 1.4.0.52373),  to avoid latency, i've only set low quality but image is ok.

     

    on win XP (real VNC Enterprise 4.5.21561) i've forced encryption off and all work fine

    note: on the second step of insert password  (on mac deskop with local credential) if you click to view the cursor .. latency start and all is locked.

    instead you type local user password at fly and all is ok

     

    Regards...

    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...)
