  • VNC - Remote Desktop (for non-xp types)

    This is pretty good software and NOT platform specific,

    does the same thing as pc anyware, or remote desktop connection

    but they have a free version available:

    there are alot of VNC aplications that are free and a few that cost money. Most people dont know about these.

    Tightvnc
    Ultravnc

    are both good free ones.

      I downloaded WinVNC, it comes with PalmVNC, I use it on my pda for control over the carputer. Works via bluetooth, it's like a portable touchscreen. Fantastic

          Just curious, what are you planning on using VNC for? is this from the car?
          I use my vzw connection from the car, and log into a win 98 box that is running realvnc (works decent on this connection). I love it, works great need to reboot the box once in 2-3 months or so.

              i run RealVNC on the car, and access it from the house, saves alot of time running back and forth to change options, tweaks, etc.

                I do the same thing when updating. I also use it to access the carpc from my laptop when I take it along on longer trips or war driving.

                  Oh yeah, those who run modded PSOne Screen. A must have application is VNC. I run RealVNC on the SupraPC. Once the screen/PowerStrip go wack. The only way to get the setting back to normal/viewable is either thru VNC or carry a big a$$ desktop monitor and hook it up to configure.

                      realvnc is an nice tiny programm. I use it on all my desktop pc and aswell on my carputer.

                      the only problem is that the viewer is freeware but the servers is shareway/ payware.

                      but I bought it, its nice,clean,accept keyboard presses like -ctrl-alt-del and it use only 200k of ram.

                        Don't pay for vnc software. Ultravnc and Tightvnc is free for the viewer and server.

                          I use tightvnc... for no particular reson... can someone point out the diffeences between real/ultra/tight?

                          Are they compatible? (tight server, real client, for example)

                            Some of the clients are compatable. I think real and tight work together but ultra vnc has some special fetures that don't seem like tight or real to work with it.

                            RealVNC = the original developed by IBM
                            UltraVNC = Many additions to incress compression and screen refreshing
                            TightVNC = Small package with improvments over realvnc but lacks some of the nice layouts Ultra has.

                            I used tight vnc for a long time and am now switching over to Ultra because I like the feture set it has and all there added bells and whistles. I would try Ultra and Tight both out and make up your mind. Also I think each one of these has linux binaries/source available.
