VNC-Clients for Mac-OS

(Just in case you don't know VNC, skip this post...)

For those interested in using VNC to remote-control another computer... a simple solution
without the need to configure X-Servers...

At least two (free) options for the Mac are available:

  • ChickenOfTheVNC: Nice, but remember to add the port-number in the address-field (e.g. What shall I say - it just works.

  • JollyFastVNC: Faster and more responsive then the "Chicken", but does not properly map the (German) keyboard... Therefore, for me as DE-localized user it is close to unusable (except I only use the mouse).
