virtual network computing
Last modified: Friday, January 21, 2005 

Through the use of software VNC, acronym for virtual network computing, makes it possible to interact with a computer from any computer or mobile device on the Internet. VNC software provides cross-platform support allowing remote control between different types of computers. To use VNC you must have a network TCP/IP connection, a VNC server and a VNC viewer to connect to the computer running the VNC server. The open source version of VNC has been freely available since 1998, and more than 20 million copies of the software have been downloaded.
