TightVNC is a remote control software and you are able to see the desktop and control it just as if you were sitting in front of it. There are other administration and connectivity tools that are used for the administrator to access computers remotely and solve problems and access systems from different locations and TightVNC, formerly VNC is such a program.

The software can be downloaded from the web and is a free tool for administrators to use to solve remote computer management.  The software has been enhanced since VNC was incorporated and one of the improvements is that files can now be transferred to the remote computer using the software and is referred to as the server. It is also possible to reverse the process with the remote workstation transferring to the base computer.

The other improvements are that the cursor is easier to control, improvement to cope with slower internet connections, better display performance and web browser improvements with more secure connections and requiring two passwords. One password for full control and one for reading only applications.

The advantages of using TightVNC is that it is free for both personal and business use with no limitations. It is perfect for administration purposes or as an individual accessing your second computer if you are travelling or from another location. It can be used across different platforms and is available for Windows, Unix and Java Client. If you already have VNC software the TightVNC is compatibles and conforms well to the protocol specifications.

Once the software has been installed on both stations you can connect to the remote station by opening the TightVNC and the connection window will appear. Enter the name of the remote machine and then options. Configure the options as you would like them and click OK. After that enter the sessions password and Ok after which the other screen will appear.

Using TightVNC you will save a lot of time and travel by solving problems and sharing files remotely. The other uses why it is useful to an individual is to check on the home computer if you are away and make sure that there are no problems.
