Posted on February 15, 2011February 15, 2011 by Bibhas BhattacharyaEnabling VNC In Mac OS X Mac OS X has a VNC server built in. You just need to enable it. These steps work in OS version 10.6.4. Open System Preferences. Click Sharing. Check Remote Management. Check appropriate permissions as shown below. Click OK. Click Computer Settings. Enable VNC and set a password. Click OK. That’s all! You can monitor the VNC server process in the Activity Monitor tool as shown below. Caveat! Not all is well with Mac’s VNC server. Watch out for these: Copy and paste between windows and Mac does not work. In fact, the moment you copy text in Windows, the VNC server crashes (and restarts) in Mac. File transfer does not work.
