3 I beg to differ. Tried krdc last night when I read about it here. It
4 connected to my VNCserver on my WinXP-box alright and everything seemed
5 fine. After a few minutes (the screensaver on WinXP already got
6 activated) my Xserver didn't react on any mouse input anymore. Even
7 killing krdc didn't help.
9 Well, I don't know what exactly was the problem, but something like that
10 never happend with vncviewer (from net-misc/vnc; running stable ever
11 since I started using it) or any other program. So, for VNC-connections
12 I would recommend vncviewer.
14 Cheers,
