x2vnc is a program that lets you use two screens on two different computers as if they were connected to the same computer.

The overall result is that it works like a dual-display workstation, where the mouse pointer can pass from one screen to the other by trespassing a screen's edge.

But x2vnc is only for a X11 server. EDIT: But x2vnc is not compatible with macOS' screen sharing VNC server.

Is there any VNC client like this for macOS?

Or what's the closest I can get with existing VNC clients?

xQuartz is an open-source X windowing system for macOS. I managed to run x2vnc on my mac:

  1. Install xQuartz.
  2. Download x2vnc.
  3. Within the x2vnc directory, run ./configure
  4. Edit the Makefile to include X11 (sorry I don't know the more elegant way to do this)

    • On line 7, add -I/opt/X11/include making the full line INCLUDES = -I/opt/X11/include -I. -DVERSION=\"$(VERSION)\"
    • On line 16, add -L/opt/X11/lib making the full line LDLIBS=-L/opt/X11/lib -lX11 -lm

      1. make and sudo make install

  • ./configure --x-includes=/opt/X11/include --x-libraries=/opt/X11/lib without manually editing makefiles – fferri Jul 7 '19 at 7:35
  • unfortunately x2vnc is not compatible with macOS' screen sharing VNC server. what I get when connecting to it is: VNC server supports protocol version 3.889 (viewer 3.3) VNC connection failed: Incompatible Version. – fferri Jul 7 '19 at 7:38
