Some testing with Lion reveals that Vine Server isn’t happy. I would just like to know if there’s any plans to update Vine Server for Lion.
Now that the GM is available, do you think you’ll ship on or before the Lion release date?
I had been using TestPlant on Mac using Vine Server on a second user profile for a while now. I just upgraded to LION and now the Vine Server reports “Network not connected to allow connections to this IP.”, Internal.
At first I thought it’s the version so I upgraded to Vine Server 3.12 and it’s the same thing. My network has not changed at all.
Does anyone have Vine Server working on Lion at all? Or is it just me?
Without it working, I cannot use TestPlant actually… Am I missing a later version of V.Svr or something?
Lion hasn’t been officially released yet. Expect that any issues with Vine will be addressed within a short time of its actual release.
Oh yes it has.
Yeah, its broken pretty good like. When I first installed Lion Server I got usereventagent hitting 90% cpu. Had to look at the log and found Vine was not happy. Tried to launch the Vine app and it crashes immediately. Had to go into the system to yank the files that made it start at boot to stop it.
You guys probably see the same thing, but just in case, here’s the message from the “report” button when trying to open vine server

Dear Matt Hicks,
Vine Server is not working on Lion and when it run, it print “CGDisplayBaseAddress is obsolete and returning NULL for display 0x1b6a6a80” in consol
Please let me know when do you have plan to release vine server for lion
We do plan to update Vine Server to work with Lion in the future – but much of the core of Vine Server will need to be modified because the API’s that are currently in use are deprecated in LION.
At this time we recommend using Apple Remote Desktop configured to allow VNC access.
Unfortunately, the new built in VNC server works with very few clients, and almost none PC.
The Inbuilt VNC server does not work well, a default Vine Server that was provided seems to be the only accurate solution, please keep us posted on the progress of the status of Vine Server, we would love to continue working with this rather than looking for any alternates.
I can only get RealVNC to work. However, the built-in server appears to use ZRLE encoding, which is very slow. Looking forward to a Lion-supported release soon!
Edit: Ergh… Scratch that. I can only get to the login screen/password prompt with either (ZRLE/Tight) encoding. Seems the problem is with Lion’s authentication (see here and [url=https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3199256?start=0&tstart=0]here).

I think “deprecated” isn’t exactly right. CGDisplayBaseAddress is “obsoleted” in Lion (meaning completely disabled), but was deprecated as of the release of Snow Leopard , so it should come as no surprise since August 28, 2009 was nearly two years ago!
That said, I do understand what a big deal it is to switch to the OpenGL alternative, GL_APPLE_client_storage and the amount of testing and debugging that will require and I volunteer my services in testing builds and contributing to get Vine Server up and running on Lion - just contact me and I’ll do what I can to assist.
Add me to the requests for Lion Support. Have held upgrading until most issues are resolved, and Vine Server seems to be the only app I have that will not work (from what I checked)
Also - Is Vine Viewer working in Lion?
Adding to the “VNC coming with Apple Remote Desktop seems not work so well”-choir, does anyone also receive a yellow screen if using either Eggplant or Vine Viewer with Apple Remotes Desktop VNC? Is there a way to get rid of it?
Looking forward to a compatible Vine Server solution 8)
Try changing the color depth on the connection from “Default” to “Millions” and see if that fixes it.
No updates yet for Lion for server? For Viewer?
Not yet. We’ll announce it here when it’s available. There’s no definite timeline at this point.
I just tried the “Vine Server 4 Beta for Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.7 (Lion)” from the Downloads page, and it works great on my Lion Mac mini (2.3 Core i5), at least on the first connection .
That’s fantastic, thanks a lot guys!
Do you have a donation page for Vine Server? I’ve been using it for ages and I’d like to express my gratitude.
 Reconnecting a VNC client has never been stable for me, not even with Vine Server 3.12. Now with V4 on Lion, the screen sometimes goes black on the client, but the mouse pointer still moves. Sometimes, the Vine Server app also crashes.
But since I’m logged in via SSH, two short commands resolve the situation:
osascript -e "tell app \"Vine Server\" to quit" osascript -e "tell app \"Vine Server\" to launch"
