Documenting Problems That Were Difficult To Find The Answer To

VNC Viewer Unable To Connect To Mac VNC Server

I was using VNC-Viewer-5.0.5-Linux-x64 on a Linux Ubunutu 12.04 desktop but was getting the following error message:

VNC Viewer Error Connecting To Mac

VNC Viewer Error Connecting To Mac

.. that reads:

To connect to Apple Remote Desktop (10.4) or Screen Sharing/Remote Management (10.5 onwards) built-in to Mac OS X, turn on the ‘VNC viewers may control screen with password’ option.

I don’t actually have a solution to this yet. When I do I’ll blog the answer. I suspect it is because only client may be connected to the desktop at a time – but haven’t been able to confirm whether this is indeed true.
