Ahh... Ok. Thanks. Unfortunately, I am not in charge of the checkbook here
at the office so I don't get that option... *sigh* Bummer, really... Oh,
well... Thanks for clearing that up for me!

That is a different driver. It is written by VNC team or for VNC team by 
some third party. To make use of it you need to get Enterprise Edition. 
I did and I have no regrets! It is great, can't say enough good things 
about it!

I work over VNC all the time, in fact it is my primary method of work. 
Mirror driver makes it an almost local experience. You feel like you are 
almost at the display of the machine, especially over fast network.

I have not had any single problem with it even though it is not released 
Basically you need to purchase EE, I am not sure if Personal Edition 
would work, then you need to ask vnc support for that driver and they 
should give it to you. You install it and that is it. VNC will 
automatically use it.

If you don't want to spend the money, UtlraVNC or TightVNC are your 
answer but they have other problems, like messed up colors if you choose 
8 bit color.
