Default VNC help.

I'm trying to get my Mac to VNC over a network right. I can do it fine without a monitor, but the second i power it off, and I took the monitor home, it doesn't VNC right. I can still SSH into the OSX kernel, and such. I think it'* because there'* no monitor hooked up, so there'* no resolution being used. When you change the resolution in the GUI, the VNC server needs to be restarted... Guys help!

Confusing...you are using a mac to VNC or your VNC'ing into a mac? Is it the host you pulled the monitor from? What machine are you using as a client?

here'* my goal. I have a Wireless router with 4 port switch. I have my Win XP box as my desktop, a laptop i use wirelessly, and a Mac running VNC (osx or 9, haven't decided).

I want to VNC into the mac, so i can play iTunes into my stereo, or let my roomate do it, whatever. Like a big jukebox. The monitor i have for it is a big 17" flat screen CRT so it'* kinda big for the setup. I can't get the VNC to work without the monitor.

With a Mac, the graphics card is required (it'* almost impossible to get a
Mac without one, most have it built onto the m/board), but as the Mac
auto-senses the monitor it is necessary to 'fool' it into thinking one is
there, by using a Mac->VGA adaptor set to an appropriate resolution. Some
of the more recent Macs have VGA sockets already - these do not require the
adaptor.
Here you go,
