Macintosh server released
-------------------------

ORL is pleased to announce the alpha release of the Macintosh VNC
server.
The server is available from the VNC web pages at
http://www.orl.co.uk/vnc .

Note. This is an ALPHA release. As with all VNC software, you use at
your own risk, but this bit is much more likely to crash your server
machine than the rest!  You have been warned.  The viewer is rather more
stable. At present the server only implements the 'raw' encoding, so it
will need a fast network.

The source code will be available in the near future, after which we
will welcome any bug fixes.

Requirements:

          PowerPC Macintosh (for the server - the viewer is a FAT
binary) 
          Open Transport 1.1.3 or better 
          A correctly configured TCP/IP connection 
          Display Manager better than 1.1 if you want display updates
            to be correctly handled
