How do I apply my subscription?

You must apply your subscription to VNC Server running on each remote computer you want to control.

Note

VNC Viewer is free to use. It does not require a license.

If you have a Home or Professional subscription, simply download VNC Connect and install it. The Licensing Wizard should automatically appear, but if it doesn’t you can right-click the VNC Server tray icon and select Licensing:

Follow the instructions to sign in using your RealVNC account credentials. Note you must do this desk-side; there’s no remote deployment capability for Home or Professional.

If you have an Enterprise subscription, you have a little more flexibility:

  • You can sign in to VNC Server desk-side in the same way as a Home or Professional subscription. If you do, direct connectivity is automatically enabled, and you can choose to enable cloud connectivity at the same time.
  • You can apply a 25 character license key to VNC Server, either desk-side or remotely. If you do this, direct connectivity is automatically enabled but there’s a separate step to enable cloud connectivity.
