I've never been able to get the VNC server in OS X to work well. In 10.4 (and previous) it would periodically just start using 100% of the cpu, and in 10.5 its really slow when accessed from a PC and it seems to just stop responding periodically and I have to ssh in and kill the process. Note that if I access it using another mac (in 10.5 anyway) things work fine, it is nice and fast and doesn't crash. If I access using tightVNC from a PC it is amazingly slow (I've seemingly tried every permutation of the encoding options) and it causes the server to crash on a very regular basis. For 10.4 I eventually just started using Vine Server which works very well in all circumstances, but if I could get it to work I'd like to use the one built into 10.5 because, other than it sucking when being used from a PC, it is integrated so nicely and works really well when accessed from macs. We experience this on multiple servers in our home - our G5 and our Intel iMac. Both running 10.5.2 (in fact it seems worse now than it was with 10.5.0). Anyone have any tips? I was hoping 10.5.2 would fix this, but now that I've lost hope for that I may just go back to using Vine (which is annoying because it doesn't work quite as well with the "Share screen" option in Finder). Thanks!
