I would suggest to the AG community to give a try to
TightVNC, it's based on the original VNC distribution,
but incorporate much more compression algorithms,
such as zlib, or jpg. Since the machines are getting
faster, it makes sense to compress more nowadays.
It runs the same way than the regular VNC, just with few
more parameters at the command line.  You can try
download rpm for Linux or a Windows install.
