hi, i take a web design class at my skills center, and well learning photoshop on the pc is just no fun, so i was gonna remote control my mac, after looking around it seems vnc is the only way to use X on my windows 2000 machine at school, i was wondering what a good vnc server is that will keep my machine speedy (im on cable so i got good upload). is there any ones that are native X. or perhaps one for unix that i can run through x11 and get my os X desktop going.





any and all help welcome





thanks in advance

    I second physguy's recommendation.



    I use OSXvnc regularly on my Mac at university and it works perfectly.

    ok i got vnc running in X fine, but the problem is the place im at has all ports except 80 closed, i tried these steps here http://home.earthlink.net/~jknapka/vncpatch.html to get vnc to run its server though port 80 but have run into trouble, mainly cuz i dont know my host name of the server or how to change it, if anyone has help in this or experience please do, its greatly apprichiated.
