    I use OSXVNC on my G5 at work to access it remotely from home.

    Before i go home I exit to the login screen so my computer is password protected. I also have a password (a different one from my login of course) set on OSXvnc. Today i came into the office and noticed that someone had tried typing a password into the login screen on my mac. (a very long one at that possibly attempting a buffer overflow).

    Does anyone know where or if OSXvnc keeps access logs? Or if OSX itself somehow tracks access on that port (5900)? I'm using Panther 10.3.4 and OSXvnc version 1.33, Thanks.

    You tried looking in /var/log/osxvnc.log ?

    Or otherwise syslog itself.
    Opening the Console app could work, too. Click on "Logs" on the left side, you should also be able to see the OSXvnc log there.

    Hope this helps you.
