Hm, so where did you get 30%? It's 56% raw, 37% zlib. :-)
Zlib percentage is smaller.

I've took a look at zlib encoder sources in WinVNC once more, and zlib
statistics are actually inaccurate. First, the code does not count
small rectangles sent raw by zlib encoder. And it does not count 4
bytes sent within each rectangle containing compressed data lenght.

And I've looked at the applet at I think
it does not represent or even come close to any real VNC session.
