/Library/Tcl/bin/sdx update tkvnc.kitThen double-click on the "tkvnc.kit" file you just fetched and you're off.All you need is a tclkit and sdx, any platform. It all hinges on the fact that sdx is able to fetch and update starkits from the sdarchive repository, which contains quite a few apps & tools.CL responds: of course! even better! And, yes, incidentally, this is all equally true for Windows or Unix (or, with a bit of straining, OpenVMS). My subconscious was involved in a fragile calculation that somehow concluded tkvnc was a particular advantage for MacOS; I now retract that, and will be ready to exploit tkvnc (and other sdarchive goodies) on all platforms.DAS - it's also worth knowing that recent MacOS X contains a built-in VNC server under the guise of Apple Remote Desktop Client 2, which you can turn on under System Prefs -> Sharing (you have to enable VNC viewing under ARD Access Privileges).BR Thanks for that hint ;-). I had to try it out immediately. My OS had only an older ARD version, though. I had to install the ARD Client update to 2.1 (a gratis download from Apple) to get the VNC server function. Another note for the configuration of the VNC client: ARD uses the display number 0.
CL now likes TightVNC for day-to-day work, but still occasionally uses "VNC Viewer for Macintosh" along with tkvnc.kit.
