RealVNC Connect is the name of our whole remote access solution. It comprises of two applications: VNC® Viewer and VNC® Server.

VNC® Server needs to be installed and run on the devices you want to access remotely. You then use VNC® Viewer on the device you want to access and control your remote devices with.

No, you don’t. To start an On-Demand Assist session, you just need to have VNC® Viewer installed on your device. On-Demand Assist uses a unique session code to connect to an end-user’s device so there’s no need for VNC® Server to be installed on their device. Learn more here.

Yes, you can. However, you won’t get the full RealVNC Connect experience which includes enhanced security, reliable high-speed connections, and features exclusive to RealVNC Connect.
