Feels much better than the jailbreak version.

With all this stuff coming to the app store, I won't even need to jailbreak 2.0

Works very well with WinVNC on Win2k.

Haven't tried with Leopard and/or ARD, but I suspect it'll be very useful.

A bit off topic, but since this is part of my server tools, Leopard Server Admin tools on iPhone would be a nice addition to the current tools. Apple listening? ;)

I can't get this to connect to my computer. It reaches the 'VNC Negotiation' stage and then never fully connects. The icon on my work PC changes to show a incoming connection but I then get a 'Host has closed connection' message after a minute or two.

Got it to connect to Leopard ARD, you must first enable "VNC viewers may control screen with password" under Screen Sharing Prefs -> Computer Settings.

It's pretty slow refreshing even over WiFi, scrolling around the screen is smooth though.

Do I just punch in my IP address to connect once I have port forward 5900 and setup remote desktop in OSX ??

This ap is excellent on my home WiFi network, but I can't get it to connect when outside of my network. I am running leopard on a MacBook Pro, do I need to do something to allow external access?

The answer is right in Post #12. Reading FTW... :p

Since its resolution limited to 1680x1200, its effectively useless for anyone with a screen bigger than Apple's standard 20" models. Shame.

m477h3w, I don't know if you can make it any simpler than that.

If you have a router ( little linksys or netgear box that is between your computer and cable modem/internet connection ) log into it using your web browser and do several things:

1) get your external IP Address (the one the rest of the internet sees you as). This is the IP address you'll use for the connection over Edge.

2) set up port forwarding to send requests on Ports 5900 and 5100 to your PC or Mac (you can get it's IP address from the DHCP list, which will also be in your router).

Every router is different, you'll need to look at your user manuals or google for more details if this does not make sense to you.

Alternately, get a better router that supports VPN connections and define a VPN connection on your iPhone to connect to that VPN. Then you can just use your regular PC/Mac IP address with no port forwarding. I use a Linksys RV082, and the VPN allows me to connect to any computer in my house. Port Forwarding as described above will only let you connect to ONE computer in your house.
