Expected Results

What is reasonable?
Note that we ask for you to judge whether the system behaviour is 'reasonable' or not, without prescribing the exact outcome. If some aspect of the system behaviour is surprising or confusing to you, it is probably worth pointing out.
  • Expected results:
    1. Desktop sharing works on both local and non-local networks
    2. When you are in a local network, you can also start a connection by clicking the 'Find' button in vinagres 'Connect' dialog, instead of entering the address manually
    3. Confirmations and passwords are checked as configured, before the desktop is shared
