I want to know all about VNC

Hello Gabriel,

	RealVNC does not authorize or certify anyone. (that I know of)  We are completely independent of AT&T and RealVNC. 

	VNC is only as secure as you make it.  Out of the box, it can be very open.  Nothing is encrypted and the passwords are crackable.  You can make it more secure by ensuring that there is a firewall between your VNC computers and the Internet.  This prevents outside users from even knowing that VNC is running on any internal computers.  The second method is to use SSH to encrypt traffic that traverses any public network like the Internet.  The third method is to set your computer registry permissions so that only a local administrator and the system account can read the hkey_local_machine\software\orl\ key and any of it's subkeys.  I'm not sure why it doesn't do this out of the box.

Here are some other VNC programs:


I'm sure others can point out more.
