First impression - VNC version 3.3.4
Fri Sep 27 18:46:00 2002
We will look at adding a port specification mechanism in the next release.
VNC performance is complex to characterise, when you consider there is
likely to be:
2 operating systems
2 graphics sub-systems
2 network interfaces
1 network (routers...)
2 lumps of application code
a variety of compression schemes
Sometimes, I'm amazed anything works at all...
