VNC Server Free Edition

If you are looking for VNC Server Free Edition, you have come to the right place. We explain what VNC Server Free Edition is and point you to the official download.

What is VNC Server Free Edition?

RealVNC is a software company that develops and publishes VNC (Virtual Network Computing) software for use in remote access, having two separate components, the client, called the Viewer application, and the Server application. Using RealVNC software, one can take advantage of the VNC protocol to control another user's screen remotely, in real time. In effect, RealVNC applications are similar to another software and vendor, TeamViewer. Both applications are available in any of three editions: Free, Personal, and Enterprise, in an ascending order of features and utilities. The Free Edition contains all the necessary capabilities for remote access, but without, for example, the Personal Edition's encryption, chat, and file transfer. The RealVNC software runs on Windows, Mac OS X, and other UNIX-like operating systems, but can also run on Java, iOS, and Android.

The RealVNC Server enables any computer on which it is installed to be remotely controlled by another computer. Although the RealVNC Server application is usually installed for legitimate remote access, viruses or other third party users (e.g. hackers) can force the installation of the RealVNC Server software on another computer to hijack its data.

Both applications (and all editions) use the RFB networking protocol, with a default TCP connection to port 5900. If a firewall is present, the user is advised to make an exception for RealVNC, otherwise the remote access will not be possible.
