TightVNC (Virtual Network Computing) is client/server software that gives users remote access to graphical desktops: they can access machines from everywhere provided the machines are connected to the Internet. TightVNC is compatible with the standard, original VNC. TightVNC can be used to perform remote administration tasks and can be very helpful in distance learning and remote customer support. Features in TightVNC that are missing from the standard VNC include local cursor handling, efficient compression algorithms, configurable compression levels, optional JPEG compression, browser access, and automatic SSH tunneling (on *nix).
