Everyone raves about Chicken of the VNC on OSX but the version I have doesn’t have ssh forwarding… something I really need. So here is how I got a good vnc.
sudo port search vnc
That listed some vnc clients.
I first tried just standard vnc. But somewhere in the middle my files got corrupted on download because I’m on a hotel network, so I had to resync:
sudo port sync
Now I tried again:
sudo port install vnc
That failed too since I removed the corrupt file that was xorg-libXmu. So I had to clean it up:
sudo port clean –all xorg-libXmu
sudo port install tightvnc
Now I have a real man’s VNC since I can get to it on the command line with the -via option!!
