Current Version: 3.1 (October 14, 2009)

Vine Viewer is a feature-rich and well supported VNC viewer from Redstone Software, the folks who brought you Vine Server (aka osxVNC). Some feature highlights of Vine Viewer include:

  • Remote screen capture
  • QuickTime movie recording
  • Secure connections through SSH
  • Viewer window scaling
  • Rich clipboard support, including copy and past file exchange (when used with Vine Server)

Vine 3.1 includes new versions of Vine Viewer and Vine Server with a host of new features and options.


  • 10.6 Snow Leopard compatibility.
  • Lots of small bugs fixes and other tweaks.
  • A new version of Vine Server (v3.11) has also been included (see the Vine Server Release Notes for full details).
  • Added specific workaround to detect UltraVNC-SC and bypass its protocol errors.
  • NOTE: Movies recorded will not play on Snow Leopard (but will play on older Mac OS X systems).

Vine Server 3.11 includes the following enhancements:

  • Fixed a number of international keyboards that had a small number of keys not mapped (like i and ; in French.)
  • Fixed a compile level problem that caused a crash when using ZRLE encoding
