I set up a VNC server (using WinVNC) on a Win2K system. I am able to
access it from a client on another Win2K system (also WinVNC).
However, when I try to access it from my Mac OS X system, it doesn't
work. It connects, and accepts my password, but all I get is a blank
screen. (It happens to be a blank screen of exactly the right
dimensions, FWIW.) Forcing a screen refresh has no effect. I have
tried several VNC clients on the Mac: VNCDimension, VNCThing, vncviewer
running on XDarwin, and three VNCViewer adaptations for OS X
(adaptations by Tim Senecal, Robert Kedoin, and Helmut Maierhofer). All
six clients give exactly the same behavior (except for the color/pattern
of the blank screen).
The two Win2K systems are on the same physical LAN; the Mac is connected
by VPN, and is effectively on the same network.
