This chapter explains how to connect to and control a host computer using VNC Viewer for Java. All you need to do this is a Java-enabled web browser to download VNC Viewer for Java from VNC Server (Enterprise) or VNC Server (Personal) on demand; you do not have to install any software. This may be useful if you are at an Internet café, for example.
Note: You cannot download VNC Viewer for Java from VNC Server (Free).
Once downloaded, you can use the VNC Viewer for Java applet to establish a connection in exactly the same way as VNC Viewer. You use your mouse and keyboard to control the host computer exactly as you would using VNC Viewer.
Note: VNC Viewer for Java has considerably fewer remote control features than VNC Viewer. For more information, see Connecting from VNC Viewer for Java.
