Re: [PLUG] X2GO vs VNC for Local Remote Desktop

That's strange.  I used both the repository versions of x11vnc (for all GUI console enabled local and remote systems) and the tightvnc version if Xvnc (for all non-GUI enabled server, systems like my Beagle Bone Black and for training / tutoring).  I've never found them to be not "snappy".

If anything I would think its the client you are using.  I highly recommend the ssvnc client.  Its written by the same author of x11vnc.  It is particularly usually for tunnelling VNC over SSH because you can establish the SSH tunnel inside ssvnc.

It can also be used with ultravnc 1-click sets ups (for proxied VNC connections via the ultravnc repeater) including sessions that use rc4 encryption keys. 'Great way to wrap a remote helpdesk app and service.  SSVNC also understands ultra's and tight's filetransfer extensions.  There are quite a number of options to create non-standard VNC connections as well.
