I'm trying to VNC to my Mac (which I can 'screen share' into from another Mac) from a laptop running Vista.
I have tried several PC VNC utilities (VNC Viewer, EchoVNC, TightVNC) but they all fail with similar error messages about not matching the Macs security type.
Am I mis-understand how this works? Should I be able to VNC to a Mac that I can screen share to without having to load any other software on the Mac?
(Mac on 10.6.4)
Many Thanks for any pointers.
MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
VNC® Viewer from RealVNC® gives you instant remote access to your Mac, Windows and Linux computers from anywhere in the world. You can view your computer's desktop, and control its mouse and keyboard as though you were sitting down in front of it. From what I've seen, it sounds like many of the solutions posted for similar question don't work in 10.7 or beyond. (For example Vine Server and TightVNC.) Does anyone know of solutions do allow using VNC to control a 10.7.5 Mac remotely from a Windows 7 machine? Is it question of configuring the Mac.
