I have a Macbook that I use for iOS development. I would like to use my Windows 7 machine which has multiple monitors to do "remote" development. What I mean is I want to be able to utilize one of the monitors on the Win7 machine to display the Macbook screen over VNC. This way I can do the development on one monitor and reference other information on the other monitor.
I can connect to the Macbook (Snow Leopard) with TightVNC no problem. I have it maximized on one monitor and everything seems to be running as it should. The issue here though is speed. For some reason that VNC session is extremely slow. Both machines are connected to each other through a LAN. The Macbook is connected using 802.11n and the windows machine is connected over Ethernet. The connection is definitely fast enough to handle smooth VNC screen sharing. Can someone please let me know what the best TightVNC settings are for a FAST VNC experience? I am using the Screen Sharing capability that comes with Snow Leopard, I am not using a third-party VNC server. I tried various settings in TightVNC but there are just so many that I don't know what the optimal one is according to Apple. Should I use JPG compression? Should I not use it? Should I use RAW? Hextile? ZLib? Anyone that has used VNC to remote control a Mac on Snow Leopard please do tell what settings are best.
