having trouble connecting to this.. "Unknown message type 255 from VNC server"

after google-ing around it seems as though Apple have butchered the VNC protocol to create their own "Apple Remote Desktop" client which they sell for US$499

has anyone successfully connected to the built-in VNC server on OSX with a free VNC client? (yes I know free VNC server for OSX are out there)

oops. I'll answer my own question for the benefit of others.

you cannot use RZLE encoding to connect to ARD. specify raw as the encoding type.
