Hi!

I run the vnc server on a PC with Windows95 and open a session from
another PC or an unix workstation. Why is so slow when sending
information to the client (i.e. updating the screen) ???,

The system is running on a switched Ethernet (10Mbps), and there is
absolutely no traffic congestion. VNC version is 3.3.2, and Hextile
encoding.

It seems that laplink via a 14.4 modem connection (with compression),
using the same both PC's, is even faster !!!.

Cheers,
Diego.
