Just to add to this, i am connecting to mac running 1080 resolution. I think this may be causing it to be slow over the lan.
Does this sounds plausible?
Just wanna make sure im not going crazy here......
Same issues here......when my clients were 10.6.8 and my admin machine was 10.7.x I had no problems. The clients are 10.8.x and they lag like crazy. It feels like true VNC now, ARD never lagged for me and always felt polished, but not anymore. No changed here except for the clients going from 10.6.8 to 10.8.2. My Admin machine is the same.
