In a test, I could stream a full HD movie across our network from my friend's computer, no problem. It's as fast as I could want.
But VNC is painfully slow. We've tried Real VNC and Tight VNC, I've played around with the
Capture Method settings, but nothing seems to make a difference; it's just so slow.
Does anyone have any tips on using VNC, on how to improve the speed, or perhaps any alternatives?
Is it the nature of not being able to notice invalidated portions of the screen quickly enough, or is there a network thing slowing it down perhaps?
We are both using Windows 7.
We need to be able to view and control each other's PCs without locking out the host, so RDP will not work (unless someone knows otherwise).
