Tip: use always the most adapted codec depending on your computer/connection
Even though the Tight codec is always the best for a remote connection,
ZLibRaw can often be more efficient for a local office software use.
Even when playing games, with a powerful server, I've already noticed that
ZLibHex can be faster, optimising games or videos on low resolutions.
Test this, it depends of your server cpu and ethernet/wifi performances.
Other tip: there is an embedded no display mode in TwinVNC. What for? A click
over on a well designed icon, you can tranform your Amiga into an extremely
useful virtual KVM.
I go on and on about this app! Its overlay, its quick and efficient software
scaling, its clear performances (test an other client on an other computer,
then you will see that the codec choice is not always easy). TwinVNC is
"I came across TwinVNC accidentally. Indeed, at the moment this new software
came out on the Amiga scene, I had no idea of what it could actually do.

After picking up some information on the VNC protocol, I realised that this
type of software was not made for me as I only have an iBook. But I however
did install a VNC server on it to play around with TwinVNC to do some grabs
The purpose of this app then seemed obvious to me but not with a laptop as
server. So, I'll have to wait another couple of years before I get back down
to TwinVNC. After having won a PC during Alchemy 6, having installed
Ubuntu 6.10 and tweaked the Ubuntu VNC server to run automatically, I finally
could start using TwinVNC again, and I do!
It allows me to do many things: using only one keyboard and mouse to control
my Pegasos under MorphOS and to control the PC. It allows me to use this
Ubuntu PC more than I would because I can now transparently use apps that
don't exist on MorphOS, as a 'modern' web browser or a torrent client for
Therefore, I can use them without even realising that I'm using a PC and
I personally use TwinVNC on its own screen with the title bar in order to have
the feeling that I'm still using MorphOS. TwinVNC has changed my user habits
and allowed me to save money (buying an extra screen) and space (you do have
to put that additional screen somewhere), and most of all, it renews the
pleasure of using MorphOS.
What can I say more? Use it, you'll see for yourself! And do think about
clicking the Paypal link... Seg should appreciate that!"
