Well, not at all. I have WinVNC configured for just poll both the foreground and
Console windows.

This is the scenario I have:

+---------+  33.6 modem link   +----------+    +----+
| HOME_PC |--------------------| SW 10Mbps|----| PC |
+---------+                    | Ethernet |    +----+

The HOME_PC is connected to the network via PPP. I run on the PC both a laplink
sever and the VNC server, the first one for exactly the same purpose than VNC:
to has the PC screen at home. What I mean in my first email is that laplink
seems faster than VNC, mainly when it redraws a window, so I'm just asking if
there can be some improve in the (compression) code. (Obviously I prefer VNC :-)
