MultiVNC Portable VNC Viewer
This cross platform VNC (Virtual Network Computing) viewer offers several features and functionalities for remote desktop access and control. Here's a breakdown of some of those features:
- Cross Platform VNC: MultiVNC is designed to run on Unix based systems (Linux), macOS (Mac OS X), and Windows, making it accessible across various operating systems.
- VNC Encoding Support: It supports various VNC encodings, including the Tight encoding. VNC encodings are techniques used to compress and optimize data transfer in VNC sessions.
- VNC with TLS Support: Includes support for secure communication using TLS (Transport Layer Security). This allows for encrypted VNC connections, enhancing security.
- ZeroConf Discovery: It can discover VNC servers that advertise themselves via ZeroConf (Zero Configuration Networking), making it easier to find and connect to available VNC servers on the network.
- Bookmark VNC Connections: Users can save and manage connections as bookmarks, making it convenient to access frequently used VNC servers.
- Framebuffer Resize: Supports server framebuffer resizing, which allows adjusting the remote desktop resolution to fit the viewer's screen.
- Tabbed Interface: Multiple VNC connections can be managed within a single viewer using tabs, making it easier to switch between different remote desktop sessions.
- Listen Mode (Reverse VNC): It allows the viewer to listen for and serve multiple incoming connections, essentially acting as a VNC server in reverse mode.
- Macro Recording and Playback: Allows for the recording and replay of user input macros. This feature can be useful for automating tasks during VNC sessions.
- Seamless Control: Under X11 (X Window System), the tool provides seamless control of the remote desktop by moving the pointer over the screen's edge. This feature is similar to tools like x2vnc.
- VNC Statistics: It offers simple and loggable statistics, allowing users to monitor and track various aspects of their VNC sessions.
- Multicast VNC Support: MultiVNC seems to have a playful reference to "MulticastVNC," suggesting potential support for multicast networking, which can be used for efficient data distribution to multiple clients.
