Similar problem here except I'm using TightVNC viewer on my laptop.
The initial connection is made, then when I enter the -correct- password (which was established on the iMac running Leopard) I get an "incorrect password" ERROR. This worked fine under Mac OS 10.4.10 and older. But Leopard has broken something.
I am having the same problem, as Leopards VNC server doesn't seem to support image compression with UltraVNC so its imposable to control over the internet as every screen refresh is done in true color making it VERY slow. Selecting something like 256 colors in UltraVNC will result in an immediate disconnect, any ideas if its possible to use Leopards VNC server with compression?
I use Vine Server for OS X (formerly OSXvnc, you can download it from: http://www.redstonesoftware.com/products/vine/server/vineosx/index.html )
Vine Server is a full featured VNC server for Mac OS X providing remote access to the GUI, keyboard and mouse using Vine Viewer or any other VNC client. Vine Server offers a rich and unique feature set among Mac OS X VNC servers including:
* Flexible port assignment for multiple VNC servers on a single computer
* System servers that run independently of user accounts
* Outstanding clipboard sharing; Exchange of rich text, images, files and applications when used with Vine Viewer
Plus, Vine Server is a full Universal Binary For Improved Intel performance and it is offered by Redstone for FREE.
how do you make it to work so that my tightvnc client can connect to it remotely outside of my network?
i use port 5909 to setup vine server (server mode or not) and this worked great in tiger. now i simply cannot connect even though i added the vine application to leopard's firewall (or disable the firewall completely).
vine server was installed in tiger i used upgrade option to leopard. i did not re-install vine. i can vnc into vine via customized port 5909 within my network not not from outside.
thank you for your help! shen
