For future planning, do you know yet whether a new version of TightVNC with
integrated file transfers would require any other ports being opened at a
firewall currently configured to allow the use of TightVNC 1.2.8?
Very much looking forward to the next release! Thanks!

The protocol extension for file transfers was designed with platform
independence in mind, but currently we have only Win32 implementation.
Making Xvnc support file transfers would not be difficult, but
implementing corresponding GUI in the Unix vncviewer would be a

I cannot say that donations for file transfer made us rich :-), but
donations sent after the announce of file transfers helped very much.
I'd like to thank everyone who supported us and maybe will support the
project in the future. Thank you!

I don't think that would be a good idea, as I see file transfers as a
core function of future TightVNC. But I think about selling some
add-ons in the future, we'll see.
