    Some have reported issues with VNC apps, but most work without issue for me. Apple's remote desktop works fine as well.

    I use Logmein for work. I have had people connect to my computer (running Lion) and I have connected to other peoples computers from my computer.

    I did Open My LogMeIn preferences and ran the available update after I installed Lion.

    Also I use JollyFastVNC Home edition and have not had a problem connecting to computers running a vnc server

    I'm sorry..but to not have apps that you use every day not work..sorry.

    We just had some Lion installers here at our editing house. They say some apps are not working..and never will because Apple did not do any backward compatibility..even on software that was developed in the past 2 years. WHICH of course…we still use because upgrading Adobe and all these hundreds of apps and tools…every year is not cost-effective.

    It's a BIG "NO CAN DO" on Lion until they offer a Rosetta installed version. I don't care about the OS being a big "Bloatey"..... I want my apps to work!!!!!!!!!!!

    I guarantee you that if any of the developers of those pieces of software really wanted to, they could have made the necessary changes to make the software compatible with Lion. But they didn't, and somehow that is Apple's fault.

    Adobe's software from 2 years ago is compiled for PowerPC, not universal? Are you sure about that?

    Windows > Lion VNC Issue Workaround


    I struggled with this issue for a couple of months and finally discovered a workaround, so I'm posting it to threads that seem relevant since I was not able to find an answer in the forums.

    I found a work-around for the Lion VNC issue:

    Like others, I have found that I can no longer connect to my Mac via VNC since the Lion DP's 'broke' the functionality. The reason is that the Lion server can handle multiple user connections now, so if you are already logged in and then try to connect remotely, it won't work because the Windows VNC clients don't know how to deal with the new feature.

    However, if you log out of your account on the Mac first, then try connecting remotely, it will work fine. Keep in mind that if you disconnect the remote session without logging out of the Mac account first, you will have to go to the Mac and manually log out before you'll be able to connect via VNC again. I'm sure that there will be VNC clients that can deal with this before long, but in the mean time, this works fine.

    An update for LogMeIn is available and allows everything to work back to normal for Mac OS X Lion users.
