Question vncviewer slower in Linux than Windows


Hi Guys,

I have a question... I have 2 computers at work, one runs Windows 7 and I have Linux Mint 15. What I noticed is that when I connect to remote computers using the Windows 7 box, the refresh rate is faster than when I connect using my MINT box. Windows 7 has real vnc installed, MINT has vncviewer and the clients have REALvnc installed.

Just wondering...

Thank you!

The main things to check are settings in the client and server for encoding, color levels and compression. Some of the other options may affect speed also.

Guys,

on my windows box, Vncviewercolour level is set to 64 colour (low); how can I set up 64 colour level on vncviewer in my linux box?
I tried # vncviewer -help and I only see truecolour as option.

TightVNC Viewer version 1.3.9

Usage: vncviewer [<OPTIONS>] [<HOST>][:<DISPLAY#>]
vncviewer [<OPTIONS>] [<HOST>][::<PORT#>]
vncviewer [<OPTIONS>] -listen [<DISPLAY#>]
vncviewer -help

<OPTIONS> are standard Xt options, or:
-via <GATEWAY>
-shared (set by default)
-noshared
-viewonly
-fullscreen
-noraiseonbeep
-passwd <PASSWD-FILENAME> (standard VNC authentication)
-encodings <ENCODING-LIST> (e.g. "tight copyrect")
-bgr233
-owncmap
-truecolour
-depth <DEPTH>
-compresslevel <COMPRESS-VALUE> (0..9: 0-fast, 9-best)
-quality <JPEG-QUALITY-VALUE> (0..9: 0-low, 9-high)
-nojpeg
-nocursorshape
-x11cursor
-autopass
