Timbuktu blows away all the VNC apps. More features, and mad compatibility. Connects & controls any Mac OSX, OS9, even OS8, plus Windows. Built in messaging system, file transfer, get system profile, idle monitor, file transfer, audio intercom, text chat, reverse connection (invite), tons of useful features. I use Timbuktu every day because it totally rocks! Awesome & solid software since 1987.
The TB2 8.85 update in ONLY required for Mavericks, not Mtn Lion nor below. Requires OSX 10.6+.
My personal TB2 settings for remote WAN use include limit to 256 colors, hide desktop, accept scaled fonts. These are in Prefs->Control. Really helps speed things up.
Major hat tip to the one guy left at Moto working to keep TB2 alive & compatible! Dude! Thanks! I'd love to buy you a beverage anytime.

Here is the general Timbuktu page, but it stops at version 8.83.
And an upgrade page for 8.84, that doesn't mention 8.85.
