What do the green (on here) and the red light (off here) indicate?

Did not find any reference to this on the UltraVNC website.

Send/Receive data I believe. Green light indicates packets are being received by the client, red indicates the client is sending packets.

thanks! Can you please point to where you read about this, if anywhere? – Lazer Aug 10 '10 at 14:46
the red one seldom (almost never) blinks. But the client should be sending about the same number of packets as it is receiving, shouldn't it? – Lazer Aug 10 '10 at 14:48
@Lazer - I don't recall, I think it is an old convention. I did find reference to the green "receive light" on the UltraVNC forums too. The way to test the red light i would imagine is to see if it lights when you type or click. You really only expect to SEND when you are inputting into the remote. – JNK Aug 10 '10 at 14:55
