    Ok, I have Chicken of the VNC running and everything works fine. I set it up to control my dad's computer. He says he can see the mouse move around on his screen that I am controlling.

    However, I can not see his mouse when he is moving it around. I know when he has clicked something, but don't actually see his mouse move.

    I am new to the VNC stuff.

    What you describe is what I'd expect no matter what client you use. But maybe my expectation is misguided.

    I seem to be having trouble with Chicken of the VNC as well. I keep getting the following error message

    Connection Terminated
    Unknown rectangle encoding 7864321 -> exiting

    If I use jollyfastvnc I dont have any problems. I tried changing the colors to 256 and still had the same problems. I currently have my display set to 0 and I dont have view only, allow other clients.., or fullscreen display checked off. I was wondering if anyone had a similar problem or knew how I may be able to fix it? Thanks a lot for any help, this is just getting really frustrating since I cant seem to find anything online about this. I am trying to access it using 10.6.6 on my MBP and I'm running Veency on a 3GS 4.1 (8B117) with MAC filtering network settings. Not sure if this would help at all since jollyfastvnc seems to work.
