TightVNC is a free remote control software package. With TightVNC, you can see the desktop of a remote machine and control it with your local mouse and keyboard, just like you would do it sitting in the front of that computer.

TightVNC is:

  • free for both personal and commercial usage, with full source code available,
  • useful in administration, tech support, education, and for many other purposes,
  • cross-platform, available for Windows and Unix, with Java client included,
  • compatible with standard VNC software, conforming to RFB protocol specifications.

With TightVNC, you can:

  • cut your expenses and save your time on traveling,
  • help your friends and family to solve problems with their computers remotely,
  • make sure nothing wrong is happening on your computers when you are away.

TightVNC provides these features which are otherwise absent in standard VNC:

  • File transfers in versions for Windows.
  • Support for video mirror driver (Windows 2000 and above).
  • Scaling of the remote desktop (viewer for Windows and Java viewer).
  • Efficient “Tight” encoding with optional JPEG compression.
  • Enhanced Web browser access.
  • Support for two passwords, full-control and read-only.
