    I've got ultra vnc installed on my office PC. I've got chicken of the VNC installed as a viewer on my MBP. I've made the connection between the two machines and can see my office PC from my Mac. BUT I think because of the screen resolution of my pc i have to scroll up and down on my mac to see the whole screen! very annoying. I saw an option on ultra vnc that you can set the screen ratio...now is set at 1/1 and i get the scrolling...if i set it to 1/2 the full screen displays but is very small/hard to see. anyone have any experience with this?

    Have you tried keeping the 1:1 ratio, but changing the PC's resolution within CotVNC? (i.e., Right-click on desktop>Properties>Settings tab)

    I do something similar, but with Screen Sharing within Leopard. I have a screen resolution of 1680x1050 on my iMac and 1440x900 on my MBP. In order to be able to access files from the iMac when I'm out, I change its resolution to 1280x800 so it fits into the 1440x900. When I'm done I just change it back to 1680x1050 and logout.
