Chicken of the VNC is a fast, lightweight VNC client for Mac OS X. A VNC client allows one to display and interact with a remote computer screen. In other words, you can use Chicken of the VNC to interact with a remote computer as though it's right next to you.

Version 2.0b4
Developer Open Source
Status Works fine

Chicken of the VNC does not work well with spaces. If you use CTRL-Arrow keys to switch spaces, it leaves CotV in a strange state.

CotV is no longer supported. A new open source project "Chicken" is available.

And what about the current version 2.0b4?

I tried to connect to two different Lion machines from a Snow Leopard machine using Chicken of the VNC, both failed. I don't think it's a Chicken of the VNC problem, because I couldn't get them to work properly using Mocha on iPad either. I think something is borked on the Apple Remote Desktop side (and yes, I did install the 3.5.1 update of ARD on Lion.)

I'm not sure where this info comes from; v 1.36 is a PowerPC app - won't even launch in Lion.

The 2.0b4 launches, but can't connect to my Mac Mini; unlike the user above, I am attempting to connect a Lion machine to a Snow Leopard machine…

Any info on an update?

I am also using 2.0b4, and connecting successfully from a Lion machine to a Snow Leopard machine. Works pretty well except that I cannot seem to do a "right-click" (even tried a Ctrl-click).

If I try connect it takes very long to connect and then I just see the login screen and not the desktop of the logged in user. Somehow the vnc stuff changed a lot in Lion.
