    I use vnc-4.1.3 from Linux. When I run vncviewer <ip> it quits right after login. When I run vncviewer -AutoSelect=0 -FullColor <ip> it shows the picture, but it usually freezes very fast after login, or immediately after login. Only few times I was able to use it for half hour.

    My network is gigabit. That same vncviewer is very stable when connected to another linux.

    What could be wrong with connecting to Mac?

    I think that the problem is the clipboard. If you activate vncviewer like this:

    vncviewer -SendClipboard=0 -AcceptClipboard=0 -FullColour -PreferredEncoding=ZRLE <ip>

    freezes should stop. Of course, copy&paste is not possible any more.
