VNC Remote-Screen Utilities for Linux

VNC Remote-Screen Utilities for Linux

If you manage more than one computer, you may have wanted, at one point or another, a “remote keyboard,” a “remote mouse,” and a “remote screen” for that far-away computer, even if it is just up or down the stairs in your house.

VNC (Virtual network computing) can help here. Think about it as your screen, a keyboard, and a mouse at a remote workstation, controlled via the network and quite usable in terms of speed, even on somewhat slower connections.

A VNC setup usually consists of two or more computers, where the computers which need to be remotely controlled run a server (the VNC server) and the clients which need to connect to it (with the possibility to do so simultaneously in many cases) running a client (the VNC client(s)).

In this tutorial, you will learn:

  • A list of the most prominent VNC utilities available for Linux
  • Which VNC server/client utility we like the best
