what software do you use to remotely control your Windows 95/98 systems? The best solution I have found so far is TightVNC (which I have been using for many years, actually), but without special screen mirror drivers like DFMirage, that are only available from Win2k onwards, its CPU usage is almost 100%. That is because, as far as I understand, the VNC "server" component basically takes an endless row of screenshots and sends them to the client, which seems to be demanding lots of CPU power (while other protocols like RDP are able to render part of the screen directly on the client). So this is far from optimal, really. As soon as the client connects, all CPU power on the server is used up for VNC.
I don't talk about gaming here, just performing basic administration tasks like software installation, driver updates, etc.
Are there any VNC variants that perform significantly better than TightVNC on Win 9x? Or are there older versions of TeamViewer etc. that perform better but still provide compatible clients that run on Win 10 x64?
