[SLUG] Anything like pcAnywhere - some interesting twists
I downloaded the Windows binaries and the Linux source from
I put the Windows binaries onto a Winbox, overwriting the existing VNC
I compiled and installed the Linux version locally and also did the same
I then fired up the remote server and connected from the local Linux
viewer through an ssh session with max compression. The performance was
acceptable, but certainly not blindingly fast.
I then dug an ssh tunnel to the remote Linux server from ttssh with max
compression, and fired up the Windows viewer to check that it worked.
Well, I have to say that the performance was very acceptable with this
latter setup, which is a pity.
In both cases, not using compression made a small, marginally perceptible
My perception, by watching the tcpdump stream, is that the ssh traffic
from Linux to Linux appears more halting than the Windows to Linux
I am at a loss to understand it as both traffic streams pass through the
same gateway, so I guess the problem must be with the local Linux box,
either the ssh app or the vncviewer app.
Anyone want to speculate on why the Linux viewer/OpenSSH combination does
not perform anywhere as well as the Windows viewer/ttssh setup.
