This software allows users to remotely access and control another computer's desktop from anywhere on the Internet, regardless of the platform.
The software is composed of two components: a viewer and a server. The viewer can be run as a standalone application or as a Java applet. The server component, on the other hand, can run on Windows, Macintosh, and a variety of UNIX platforms. VNC's platform-independence is truly impressive, as it allows you to display a desktop running on a Linux machine on a PC, a Solaris machine, or any number of other architectures.
With VNC, you can connect to the PC running the server component and remotely control it. Multiple users can connect with certain configurations, and you can send commands to the remote PC and cut and paste ASCII text between the viewer and the server. Overall, VNC offers a reliable, platform-independent solution for remotely accessing and controlling computers.
