  IMPORTANT NOTICE

What's new in VNC Connect 6.8.0 (r45849):

  • NEW: Screen Recording for computers running VNC Server 6.8.0+ and VNC Viewer 6.21.920+ with a Professional or Enterprise subscription.
  • NEW: Dark mode support for MacOS.
  • NEW: VNC Viewer can now send the connection password to a VNC Server on Windows that is at the login screen. This is useful for users that are using System Authentication to authenticate to VNC Server and saves typing in the password again, after connecting. This feature is accessible via the F8 menu for the first 30 seconds of the session.
  • NEW: WinSSOAccountCheck parameter added to VNC Server on Windows to allow relaxing of Windows account status checks when authenticating via SSO. This may be useful if connecting VNC Viewer users are experiencing problems authenticating to VNC Server.

Computer evolution takes place at a fast pace and it is hard for some users to keep up with the progress. Therefore, when something goes wrong with their PCs, they prefer to ask for help from their more tech savvy buddies.

To save time and to get accurate information, it is best if these friends can connect remotely to the computer they need to fix. They can use VNC Connect, thus being able not only to view the connected PC’s desktop, but also to control it.

Requires medium-difficulty configuration

In order to use VNC Connect efficiently, the server and the viewer components need to be deployed on two different computers (this can be configured during early stages of the installation).

The viewer needs to connect to the server before starting any connection. Also, before actually using this application, a license key needs to be obtained online, depending on the type of features one prefers.

After a connection is successfully established, users can save its details for later use, thus creating a so-called VNC Address Book. They can also preview the connected PC in full screen mode, thus getting better visibility onto the broken or infected target computer.

Allows you to switch between read-only and viewer mode

With as much as simple mouse click, one can start a chat conversation or send the Ctrl+Alt+Del command, as well as find out the connection speed.

Experts can access the Options window of the Viewer component to enable or disable keyboard input and mouse input, activate Read-only Mode and modify the scaling method.

Whenever a user wants to make sure that no unauthorized personnel gets access to their apps and/or settings, they password protect them. The tool also provides this possibility, permitting each person to select a master password that will be requested before each connection.

A handy tool for share data via remote connections

All in all, VNC Connect is a valuable tool when remote connections are necessary, or simply when users want to share printers, chat or transfer files. The software comes with a freeware license for private use, with restricted functions, so a paid license is required for business environments.
