TightVNC is a free and Open Source remote desktop software that lets you access and control a computer over the network. With its intuitive interface, you can interact with the remote screen as if you were sitting in front of it. You can open files, launch applications, and perform other actions on the remote desktop almost as if you were physically there.

TightVNC is:

  • Free, GPL-licensed, with full source code available;
  • Useful in remote administration, remote customer support, education, and for many other purposes;
  • Cross-platform, available for Windows and Unix, compatible with other VNC software;
  • Well maintained and being actively developed.

This version includes both the VNC viewer and server.

What’s New

  • Server for Windows: Support for the third-party ExtendedDesktopSize pseudo-encoding has been removed due to incompatibility issues, complexity, and error-proneness. It has been replaced with a similar TightVNC-specific protocol extension, the new DesktopConfiguration pseudo-encoding, which allows users to choose a specific monitor in the viewer when a remote host has multiple monitors connected. Multi-monitor handling will be implemented in next versions of MightyViewer and Remote Ripple.
  • Server for Windows: Fixed an issue with disabled file transfers in RDP connections.
