I have a version of VNC viewer (my own code) that I know runs on OSes as
old as 7.6.1.   If you find that it has bugs on 7.5.x, let me know, I will
try to fix them for you.

you can find it at:

http://www.geocities.com/tim_senecal

it does require open transport.

it does create "session" files which contain passwords.

it is rather rough around the edges though, try it and see if it works for
you.
