    Hey all, I'm looking for a VNC server and having a lot of trouble since OSX has a built in. I can't get the OSX built in server to let me log in without a password, and I'm trying to log in from a virtual reality VNC app on Android, so it doesn't have a keyboard.

    So I've tried using Vine Server, which seems really great....but it's quite slow. Even when connecting through a tethered USB connection.

    Can anyone recommend a faster VNC server for Mac? I'm considering trying to build a Linux one from source but the dependency tracking would be a nightmare.....

    This this one, it's not free (has a trial option) but is the fastest one I've used:

    Hey thanks for the reply, but this is a client, I need a server. Apple seems to have killed most of them by including a VNC server as part of OSX.

    I should read carefully. While this is not VNC, but does the same thing and is blazing fast.

    Worth a look: https://www.nomachine.com

    I use it on my Linux box, and connect to it from my Mac over SSH.

    Maybe have a look at this client: https://jumpdesktop.com/

    There is a free trial. Lots of advanced options and variables that speed the VNC up :).
