Trusty old remote computing app TightVNC nears 2.0 release
Over at the official site, they have just posted a download for TightVNC 2.0 beta 1 -- and it's a complete rewrite of the TightVNC code. The new release is Windows only at this point, and sports a lengthy list of changes and improvements. The file transfer tool has been re-worked and now supports files over 4GB, there's a new administrative interface, and overall reliability and speed has been improved.
No standalone portable version has been posted yet, but you can simply dump the vncviewer.exe on your USB flash drive or network share.
While it may not be quite as easy to set up as TeamViewer or Mikogo, TightVNC is totally free for both personal and commercial use, which is a big plus in my book -- since I can use it at work without cutting into my software budget.
