VNC (Virtual Network Computing) allows you to take control of a remote computer over the network. For example, you can run a graphical application on another computer from your computer. This facility is very useful for mobile users who want to run specific programs and get the results while they are on the road. The Java client included in VNC helps you to access the remote computer through the web browser without the need to install any other software.

VNC, the opensource software, is currently available for Windows, UNIX, Linux and Solaris. It works well over LAN and does not consume too much memory. For a slow connection you may have to compromise on some of the attributes such as number of colors, wall paper , number of active windows and many others. VNC is able to control all the I/O devices of the remote computer such as keyboard, mouse and display.

The program functions as a service process which allows you to connect to a system where nobody has logged in. The interface can handle only limited number of connections and the rest can be saved as shortcuts to be used later. The installation files are small and the process is very easy which enables VNC to be used by both home and professional users.

The application is well documented and so the user gets all support needed for proper running of the software.
