You can manage aspects of the current connection while it is in progress.
Note: Most of the operations described in this section are facilitated by the VNC Viewer toolbar. More on this toolbar.
Saving the current connection
You can save the current connection so you can quickly reconnect without having to remember the network address and authentication credentials. In addition, your preferred VNC Viewer environment for controlling the host computer is automatically recreated each time.
To save the current connection, click the Save Connection toolbar button. Carry on from Appendix A, Saving Connections.
Establishing a new connection
You can establish a new connection to the same host computer, or to a different one.
To do this, click the New Connection toolbar button. The VNC Viewer dialog opens. Carry on from Connecting to a host computer.
By default, any options you configure are inherited by the new connection. To prevent this, open the VNC Viewer - Options dialog and turn off Use these settings for all new connections first. More on this dialog.
Closing the current connection
You can quickly close the current connection. To do this, click the Close Connection toolbar button. You are prompted to confirm the operation before the VNC Viewer window closes.
