The protocol 3.130 was an experimental feature which appeared in
TightVNC 1.3dev1 only (development version). Then its support was
dropped and so it did not ever appear in stable versions.
Protocol 3.130 does not comply with the official RFB specification and
breaks normal RFB protocol interoperability. Due to such compatibility
problems, such protocol variation should not be ever used. That means
TightVNC 1.3dev1 should not be used as well.

I have a Solaris 8 machine, but frankly I did not try to compile Xvnc on
it. I will try to do that when I'll have some spare time, but I cannot
guarantee it would be done in the nearest days.
My company instituted Symantec Protection Agent (aka: Sygate Personal Firewall). Now I cannot VNC from my personal PC to my corporate laptop as I used to. AND, they've locked this software down so I cannot add/alter how SPA/SPF deals with the TightVNC server.
Now, there is a known issue with Oracle's Listener with this firewall, and the solution was to add a string to the registry, in the appropriate Oracle folder(s) of USE_SHARED_SOCKET set to TRUE.
So, is there some sort of registry entry I can add that will get TightVNC's server to work with this p.i.t.a. SPA/SPF software?
