Connecting to Mac OSX Lion with Screen Sharing (VNC)

Today I was having issues with connecting to my Mac running Lion from my Windows 7 laptop. The client let me enter my VNC password and then presented me with the Lion login screen where I couldn’t enter the user password.

After looking around a bit I finally pinpointed the problem to be in the choice of encoding in my UltraVNC client. The setting that finally worked for me is “Tight” but if that doesn’t work for you it might help to just try a couple of different ones!
