QUESTIONS

1. I am currently running an i7 eight cores Notebook with VNC connection to a Mac-Mini via USB 3.0 1000 mbps network adapter attached, but VNC always connected at 100mbps, I have reduce its resolution and color, result still the same.

I needs a fast instant MacOS screen responds on PC VNC viewport.

Any reason why VNC cannot reach 1000 mbps ?

Please advise.

....just received answer from VNC as shown below:

RealVNC doesn't determine network speed of the host devices. With a connection between VNC Viewer and VNC Server with a paid license, these connections are optimised but this is not influenced nor does it influence hardware.

- If you're connecting to a Mac Mini, is this connecting to Apple Screen Sharing or VNC Server?
- You may wish to check to see if there is a better driver available for the adapter if it's connected to a Windows PC.
- A USB2 connection has a theoretical maximum of 480Mbps so a USB3 version would be required to attain gigabit ethernet speeds.
- Another possibility is that the ethernet cable you're using is not capable of a gigabit connection (required cat 5E cable or better)
