I needed to get access to a Mac Mini from Windows 7. RealVNC just gave me errors and wouldn’t connect properly. If you want to connect to Leopard from a Windows box, here’s what you need to do.
First you need to get hold of RealVNC (don’t worry, it’s free!).
On the Mac, enable Screen Sharing and set a password in Computer Settings. Expect “No matching security types” errors if you don’t.
In RealVNC on the PC, set the color setting to full color and turn off Render Cursor Locally in the Misc panel.
Add your IP address and you should be good to go.
Thanks to Sophie for reminding me this place still exists, even if I don’t update it as often as I should!
