TightVNC is a free, attribute-rich remote desktop software that permits users to access and control remote computers over a network.
TightVNC's main function is to provide remote desktop access and control. It enables users to connect to a remote computer and interact with its desktop as if they were sitting in front of it. This functionality is particularly useful for IT administrators, technical support personnel, and individuals who need to access and manage remote systems. It also offers strong security measures to protect remote connections. It supports encryption using Secure Shell (SSH) or Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunneling, ensuring that data transmitted between the local and remote machines remains secure and confidential. Additionally, TightVNC allows users to set up password authentication to restrict unauthorized access to remote desktops.
