RealVNC slowness (WinVNC)
Thu Jun 12 17:01:53 2003
I've also noticed this 15 seconds delay before being
able to take the controle of the mouse.
As Ultr@VNC handles both ZRLE and Tight encoding,
comparizons are more easy:
- It is when the connection is really slow : <
- It happens ONLY with Tight encoding.
Mouse handling is immediate after initial screen
loading when ZRLE encoding is used.
That's the main reason why Ultr@VNC uses ZRLE as
default encoding in AUTO mode... (and also because
it takes less CPU and it's faster). Don't get me
wrong. No ideology here. I still prefer TightVNC for
many others good reasons (options, jpeg, better
local cursor handling... ;)
Until now, I had no time to search why Tight
encoding causes this delay. I'm too busy with Ultra.
Both versions (RealVNC and TightVNC) have their own
advantages and drawbacks and both are HIGH quality
