Tried it using my iBook, Airport Express & PPC + WiFi SDIO card.
At the iBook side, I used OSXvnc (1.4) while on the PPC side, I used vncview.exe. Despite the fact that the connection is "local" and the only things communicating on my "network" are the 'Book, the PPC and the AirPort Express, access is as slow as molasses.
In short, if you want to use this, you'll have to be verrryyy patient.
Oh and BTW, the latest version of VNC doesn't work with OSXvnc, I was forced to use the version for PPC 2000 (I'm using PPC 2003).
