What Is It?

TightVNC Java Viewer is a program able to view and control TightVNC and VNC servers. Like a normal VNC viewer, it shows the remote desktop and allows to operate with your local mouse and keyboard as if they were directly connected to the remote computer. It can be used either as a standalone program, or as an applet embedded in a Web page.

April 21, 2010 – TightVNC presents new experimental release of TightVNC Java Viewer (version 1.5.1) which supports built-in SSH tunneling. This means you can easily add encryption and strong authentication to all your VNC and TightVNC connections and close direct access to TightVNC ports.
