I couldn't get it to work It just said connecting and never did anything else.



Never mind. I forgot to turn Wi-Fi off on my phone. It works great!!



Hey, it is a nice post in order to setup VNC on MAC for remote support purposes. Additionally, one can even consider deploying on premise remote support appliance such as Bomgar or RHUB appliances or can even use remote support tools such as logmeinrescue, gosupportnow, GoToMyPC etc. in order to remotely control MAC or Windows computers.



Why add another app when the native OSX Screen Sharing supports VNC? Go to System Preferences, Sharing, check the box to enable screen sharing, and click the Computer Settings button to enter a password for VNC connections. Only about 4 clicks and you're good to go and setup your port forwarding and Mocha.



Vine VNC Server supports additional features that the default OS X VNC server doesn't include. Things like changing the port number (if you have more than one computer you want to connect to external to your network), making the user be logged in through SSH before letting them log into VNC, which is a lot more secure than standard VNC connections. Some users have also reported that Vine is faster over slower connections than the built-in server. 

You can find out more about the different features of Vine VNC Server by checking out their site.
