I'm connecting to my work's iMac through VNC. On the client side I use JollysFastVNC (on my Mac at home) and as server I use Lion's built in VNC server. The appearance is just great but the overall performance sucks. I would prefer less quality and gain a bit of performance instead. Unfortunately Lion's VNC server only allows high-quality connections. Only thing I can adjust is the color depth.

Is there a better free VNC server for Lion?

It doesn't use VNC, but it works very well. You can adjust the settings for better speed, quality, etc:

And you don't have to set up any port forwarding on your firewall, it all goes through the TeamViewer servers. I highly recommend it.
