Ultra VNC vs Real VNC
does anyone have any views on the merits of Ultra vs Real VNC programs? I am planning to use it wirelessly from a laptop in the classroom to control a computer thats on the network connected to a projector. We have a (shock!) Novell network if that makes any difference.

RealVNC - original VNC, reliable but slower and higher bandwidth requirements. Could be an issue over wireless.
UltraVNC with the mirror driver installed - fast, good choice for wireless admin but I have had stability issues with the mirror driver and cheap and cheerful machines with poorly written graphics drivers. Worst case with the mirror driver - I managed to reboot a whole room full of machines (BSOD reboot) by firing up a VNC scan!

We use RealVNC with a patch so it doesn't display in the icon tray. Works fine on wireless laptops.

Any chance of a copy of that patch?

We use UltraVNC, purely because there's a simple tick box if you don't want to display the icon in the tray. Saves with all the patches and also the possibility of breaking the licensing terms of using a patch on RealVNC.

Everything I've read seems to indicate that ultra is a better product, it's being actively developed, it's speedy got good graphics and good features.

I use UltraVNC with VNCScan - damned good bit of kit and the licences aren't too pricey (£50 iirc) - allows deployment to all PCs on the network, AD import, connect via RDP/VNC and a ton of other stuff..

we use ultravnc purely because when i first went looking it was the only one allowing domain authentication instead of a standard password.
it seems stable to us, and we haven't had any major probs.
never had the need to hide the icon at our place so can't comment on the ease of doing that

UltraVNC here as well. Simple to setup and configure. Lots of features.
