New Version Is Here!

July 20, 2011 — GlavSoft, LLC is proud to introduce new TightVNC Java Viewer version 2.

This version was designed and written from the scratch. Our primary goal was to eliminate numerous problems of previous versions, and we think we have reached the goal.

New version is faster and more stable, uses Swing-based user interface and should be perfectly compatible with modern Java environments. New source code features improved design, component-based architecture and high code quality — it should be far easier to integrate new viewer with other Java programs.

Future versions of the viewer will include file transfers, desktop scaling, new color depths, improved security, and more. It will be actively developed.

What Is It? — a "Run-Anywhere" Remote Control Client

It's a fully-functional remote control program written in Java. It can work on any computer where Java is installed.

  • It connects to another computer and displays its live remote desktop.
  • It lets you control the remote computer with your mouse and keyboard, just like you would do it sitting in the front of that computer.

It requires that the remote computer is running any type of VNC-compatible server software (standard VNC, TightVNC, UltraVNC, x11vnc, Apple Remote Desktop in Mac OS X, Xen/HVM, VMWare, Qemu etc.). For Windows systems, TightVNC Server is a recommended option.

Why Java? What Are the Benefits?

  • It can run on any hardware, under any operating system with Java installed.
  • It's nearly as fast as the native version (our tests show it can be faster in certain situations!).
  • It can be easily integrated with Web sites and Web-based services.

Finally, it can be used as a Web applet. That means users can access their desktops from any computer with any Java-enabled Web browser, without installing any software on the client computer.
