Once licensed, VNC Server permits connections to the host computer on which it runs out-of-the-box. You should not need to configure it. However, you can change almost any aspect to suit your requirements and environment if you wish.
This chapter explains how to operate VNC Server. It also explains advanced scenarios such as running multiple instances concurrently, configuring ports, and restricting access to features for connected users. For comprehensive information on security, see Chapter 7, Making Connections Secure.
This chapter assumes you have access to the host computer and sufficient privileges to configure both it and VNC Server. Note that if you are setting up VNC Server on your own computer for remote access, some features require a host computer user to be present when the connection is established, and should therefore be avoided.
