    Does anyone know of a simple way to set up a VNC server on OS X so that the computer can be accessed through an in-browser Java applet? I found a guide here, but it seems to be rather out of date.

    Go to System Preferences==>Sharing==>Apple Remote Desktop==>Access Privileges==>VNC Users may control screen with password.

    Note that if you don't tunnel it via SSH it is very insecure and if you run it from a network the connection may be automatically shut down.

    OK, but I still need a way to set up and host a [edit: SSH-enabled] Java VNC client on OS X.

    Apparently RealVNC does what I'm looking for, but I haven't tested it yet.

    Did you ever try this? Does it work well with a Mac? I've used it on Windows computers before and it works very well there. Especially handy when ports are blocked :D
