  • Relatively speaking, this is the best remote desktop tool I've found so far! I just wanted something to remote into my linux fedora machine in our room upstairs from my downstairs windows machine (wife sleeps later than I do). I tried teamviewer and it worked fine for a couple of months, then I couldn't connect. I read some reviews that had me worried they might try to accuse me of using their software for commercial purposes (nope), but at the very least I wasn't so sure if I wanted them to monitor me so closely. I then tried google remote desktop. Every few minutes I had to run up to my fedora machine and let google know I didn't want to get kicked off. Booted that. There have been a couple of minor annoyances with tightvnc. I had to disable encryption to get it to work, no biggie since there is only the two computers on my home network and I'm behind my router and a switch. Also I couldn't type some characters in from my windows machine - ex: ) and (. Again, easy enough to get by. I would just run upstairs and type in what I wanted,then copy the characters and paste them if I needed to use them again.

  • This is the best open source VNC software that I have seen for Windows. The source code is very cleanly written and it compiles without problems on Visual Studio.

  • I hit an ugly corner case with Xvfb (via xvfb-run) which was causing some mission critical software of mine to core dump (due to a nasty XServer I/O error, which I didn't feel like tracing). Note, I'm not an expert on X internals. But, no worries... TightVNC to the rescue! Great job guys, thanks 1e6!

  • This really sucks. Can't get support for their command line switches to install. The manual just sucks. I am posting what I tried to do in a batch file because it does not work. After install the server runs as a service when I have it set to not be that way. Need silent install with it not running as a service and once you delete the startup service it does not hold the password. I did on twitter message about it and they told me to contact them on their support email and have not heard from them at all. Not even a acknowledgement of the email. Here is what I setup per their manual. msiexec /i tightvnc-2.5.2-setup-32bit.msi /quiet /norestart ADDLOCAL=Server SERVER_REGISTER_AS_SERVICE=0 SET_USEVNCAUTHENTICATION=1 VALUE_OF_USEVNCAUTHENTICATION=1 SET_PASSWORD=1 VALUE_OF_PASSWORD=password Once I start the server it has a red outline around it because did not hold the password.

  • Hi, New 2.5.2 version is very good for 64bits machines. I'm waiting for documentation of .msi switches. I want prepare unattend installation package.

  • thank you for such interesting project and good implementation

  • Nice project, would even be more better if they told you how to use the MSI switches

  • Very nice!

  • Good work:) Thanks

  • Good work:)

  • Good project, thanks a lot for sharing

  • TightVNC is really supporting remote copy / paste, and, in my opinion, superior to UltraVNC. UltraVNC does not properly handle special key combinations (for example, ALT left arrow key to navigate within the application, etc.). Copy / paste from UltraVNC requires the use of menus to be reliable; attempt to copy paste using the CTRL + C / Ctrl + V is unreliable. TightVNC is behaving exactly as expected with the use of special keys and, thus, the overall winner for advanced users who do not rely on the mouse to interact with the environment.

  • Brilliant, bloody brilliant.... I am amazed by people who develop these types of apps, I used RealVNC for years and in my opinion TightVNC outshines it by far, I only played with UltraVNC.. But, this fits the bill in every respect, I have no problems donating to great work such as this. thanks const_k for all the great work

  • very useful project

  • TightVNC 1.3.x support Multi-Bytes characters clipboard transfer, that's why I use TightVNC 1.3.x, not 2.0.x. 旧版本支持剪贴板中文字符传输,2.0 版本则不支持。

  • Works.. What else do you need..

  • good job

  • very good project

  • This app works flawlessly every time and everywhere I use it. Thanks a million for free open source software that rivals anything that is available commercially.

  • Hi To perform a standing wrist curl, a barbell can be held in both hands with the palms facing backward. The bar should be behind the lifter. The same motion should be performed as in the seated wrist curl. The range of motion will be smaller but the standing wrist curl offers the benefit of providing the most stress on the target muscles at their peak contraction _______________________________

  • 非常棒!

  • Version 2.0 is easy to install, stable, supports fast user switching in Windows and works great as a service in Windows Vista. Could use a bit less CPU time though... Since VNC traffic is not encrypted, I recommend creating a TLS tunnel with stunnel (

  • good features

  • Excelent Programa!
