I think the standard RFB protocol specification (in particular, the
3.7 version) clearly states that:
In addition to genuine encodings, a client can request a
"pseudo-encoding" to declare to the server that it supports a
certain extension to the protocol. A server which does not support
the extension will simply ignore the pseudo-encoding. Note that this
means the client must assume that the server does not support the
extension until it gets some extension-specific confirmation from
Why not to treat ZlibHex (or Tight, or anything else) just as a
"pseudo-encoding" in that context?..
But I think the problem in this case is that a certain VNC client does
know ZlibHex encoding, but cannot decode it correctly (note "ZlibHex
unknown _subencoding_"). I guess that's a problem with a specific
encoder/decoder, and it has nothing to registered encoding numbers,
correctness of any replies in the VNC mailing list, any PR activities
or politics in general.
With Best Wishes,
