    Hi guys,

    I'm having trouble to use VNC Server.

    I have 1 Mac mini and 1 Pegasos II both under MorphOS 3.7

    I would like to control my Pegasos II from the Macmini.

    Both are on same network.

    I run VNC server on Pegasos II
    I run ZVNC on Macmini

    My IP adress of Pegasos appears on ZVNC/Macmini.

    Selecting this server my mouse is grabbed and I can control the Pegasos cursor from the Macmini, but I dont have the display of the Pegasos on the Macmini.

    Isn't it intended to get exported the display from the server into the client?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    best regads

    Thats exactly what it should do, zvnc is not a full fledged vnc client.
    Its intended for sharing mouse and keyboard not remote control.

    If you want that (display support) use MorphVNC

    Thank you very much weiseb.


    @ MorphOS team :

    I think it's strange to give a VNC server into the system without the full featured VNC client. MorphVNC was done by bigfoot, so why dont integrate it?


    I was wrong thinking ZVNC is this client.

    I will try MorphVNC asap.

    best regards.

    On MOS-distribution a full server is included: Applications/VNCServer
    Works pretty fine here on Minis, Pegs and G5........
    For client I use TwinVNC....(http://aminet.net/search?query=twinvnc)

    TwinVNC seems to be the best client around. It works well with vnc4server (Debian). Including clipboard copy & paste.

    For some reason MorphVNC just exits when using keyboard or mouse. I also found that also VVA (68k) works, but clipboard stuff is not compatible.

    TwinVNC has one weak point: does'nt support clipboard for now...

    VNC-Server:
    Main problem if useing a PEG as server: it's a bit slow, depending on screen-depth. Useing 8Bit-screens is quicker but looks a bit strange.....

    Would be nice to know how it compares zu a Citrix-Server (unfortunately there is none on PPC-hardware - afaik)

    "Main features: [...] - clipboard support between client and server"

    You are right - I mixed it up with file-transfer........

    Hi guys,

    "VNC Server" and "TWIN VNC" works fine together.

    Thanks a lot.
