Does anyone know how I can connect to a 10.5 leopard server or client from a Windows 7 machine running either UltraVNC or RealVNC. I have tried both and I get the password prompt but then screen disappears. I have tried IP address, DNS name but same issue.
If I do it from a XP client and use ultravnc it works.
I have the latest versions of both Ultra and Real VNC installed.
Any help would be great.
if you enable screen sharing in the sharing prefs in system prefs and also allow screen sharing through the firewall ( you can set a password and allow vnc users to access screen sharing sessions in the screen sharing prefs in the sharing system prefs )
obviously if you are trying to do this from one site to another and there are routers / firewalls then you will need to get relevant ports forwarded / unblocked etc

Resolved now, used Tight VNC instead of UltraVNC (which is what I always used) and it works. For some reason on 7 I wasn't able to access a Mac OS 10.5 client/server.
