-- duncan-lithgow <<DateTime(2008-08-03T22:15:50+0200)>> I've moved discussion here and added some categories. It'd be great if all the Apple Mac related articles were in the same category, maybe with a little logo?
In Mac OS X 10.3.9, the Access Privileges sheet doesn't have a "VNC viewers may control screen with password" checkbox, or any mention of VNC. -- MatthewPaulThomas UPDATED Links for 10.3.9 : Apple Remote Desktop 3.2 ( Note: the links below no longer work but I'll leave them for historical sake ) -- -- imbrandon <<DateTime(2008-02-04T07:48:02Z)>> Mac OS X 10.3.x (Panther) ships with an old version of Apple Remote Desktop Client that does not interoperate with third-party VNC viewers. You can correct this by downloading and installing Apple Remote Desktop Client 2.2 to match what's bundled with Mac OS X 10.4.x (Tiger). Alternatively, you can upgrade 10.3.9 or 10.4.x to have Apple Remote Desktop Client 3.1, which Apple says "is recommended for all users." -- EricPScott By default Apple Screen Sharing uses a proprietary security type and so clients such as vinagre, xvnc4viewer will receive error messages such as "incompatible version" or "no matching security types." Fix using the steps in the first section or via the command line, such as via ssh, replacing with your desired VNC password as appropriate:
