UltraVNC is a popular opensource/free program that allows Virtual Network Computing from any computer with it's software installed. Along with UltraVNC there is UltraVNC Single Click, which is a light version of UltraVNC (only 200KB) that allows a user to just run the program without the hassel of installing and uninstalling from a computer that is not yours to begin with. The Single Click program does not modify the registry but only has limited functionality. UltraVNC SC is a very useful and handy tool for being on the road with your company or on vacation at a family members home with their own computer.

Running a VNC Server
UltraVNC allows a user to run a Server for their Virtual Network Computing. The VNC server runs default on Port 5900 and allows for multiple settings, such as default password, port change and different view settings a user can have. With the VNC server installed as a Windows XP Service you never have to worry about starting up UltraVNC again! Once you have your server configured you need to forward a port (if behind router/firewall) 5900 to the computer with UltraVNC. If you are on a router with multiple computers on your network, to setup a VNC server that is accesible for each computer simply change the default pport to something other than 5900 and forward the port from the router to that computer. If you need help on Port Forwarding search Google for "Port Forwarding."

Running multiple computers with UltraVNC Virtual Network Computing server installed you can access any computer on your network by UltraVNC with great color and speeds. After the UltraVNC Server is installed, setup and configured to your needs it is time to figure out the UltraVNC Viewer.

UltraVNC Viewer
The UltraVNC Viewer allows a user to remotely connect to a Virtual Networked Computer Fast and Easy. Simply get your computers IP Address (If your IP Address is not static I suggestNo-IP.com to provide you with a Static IP Address. Once you have your IP Address, simply type it into the viewer (If you changed the port from 5900 make sure you do a IP_ADDRESS::PORT to connect to that VNC Server). You will be prompted for a password, type in the default password and now you have access to your computer with UltraVNC Server installed. You can have multiple connections to different servers, if you are on a network with multiple VNC Servers this makes for a great way to tap into 5 computers at once and perform updates remotely without traveling from Computer to Computer.

WinVNC is awesome. For security? lol It is used to spy on you. I am sure it would not be too hard to break into WinVNC. I would figure out a way =)

VNC is a nice software, but you cannot use it over the Internet easily, for example: access a computer at office from home. I found a cool software NeoRouter (www.neorouter.com), that can help you to create virtual LAN over the Internet so that you can use VNC without any configuration, plus you can use Windows Shared Files, printers and so on.

If you are looking for a remote control program easy to use and do not give you any annoyance to the configuration of ports, firewalls and more use Ammyy Admin is quite useful.
