Whic VNC for Mac OS X? - Mac Networking

I've been using Timbuktu with my networked Macs and it works just fine. I now have another computer in the mix and I either need to buy another copy of Timbuktu (and upgrade others for Panther support) or try somethine else. I'm looking for opinions from folks who've used more than one of the available VNC programs for Mac OS X (or even if you've used just one and really like it) which one do you use and recommend to new VNC users, and why? I've found Real VNC from http://www.realvnc.com/ and Cicken of VNC from http://sourceforge.net/projects/cotvnc/ Anybody like or ...

    Default Whic VNC for Mac OS X?

    I now have another computer in the mix and I either need to buy another

    available VNC programs for Mac OS X (or even if you've used just one and

    why?

    I've found Real VNC from http://www.realvnc.com/

    and

    Cicken of VNC from http://sourceforge.net/projects/cotvnc/

    Anybody like or use either of these, or perhaps another is better?

    Looking for Open Source or GPL...

    Thanks,

    I've been using OSXvnc as the server and Chicken of the VNC as the

    Mom's up-link speed is only 128Kbits/sec, so screen updates for a 17"
    iMac at 1440x900 (24 bit color) does take awhile to update. But it sure
    beats driving the 300 miles to Mom's house.

    If you have a faster connection, then screen updates should be much
    better.

    OSXvnc is at http://www.redstonesoftware.com/vnc.html
    It is freeware and it also available from sourceforge.net

    I have similar experiences (although on a local home network). Chicken
    of the VNC crashes occassionally, but most of the time I'm very happy
    with it.
