Enhanced TightVNC viewer with SSL/SSH tunnel helper
  7 reviews

VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is, in essence, a remote display system which allows you to view a computing `desktop' environment not only on the machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the Internet and from a wide variety of machine architectures.

SSVNC is two things:

* An enhanced version of the TightVNC client with support for more encodings and color modes, support for x11vnc and UltraVNC extensions, dynamic screen resizing, an improved popup menu, etc.

* A GUI that helps set up an SSL (using stunnel) or SSH tunnel to connect to the VNC server through, as well as forwarding of ports for audio (esound/aRts), SMB, CUPS etc.

Can't find evidence the project is maintained. Last update to Sourceforge in 2011. Dev site gone. Why stilil in repos...

Easy to setup and use. However, while I had no problem connecting desktop->laptop...when I tried the other way around all I could see was the desktop's background showing (no icons, menu, windows, etc). So if you have an older integrated gfx card (??) you might run into some problems using it as a client. Oh well. (and for those wondering this is better than the standard tightvnc viewer imo)

Best Linux VNC client that I have used.

Great app, used it with Ubuntu 10 and now with Mint and has worked flawlessly. Has a number of functions with can be used if needed but only if you want to dive in, I like the fact that it displays current VNC servers so you don't have to mess about with manually inputting IP address's. Will continue to be the one I use.
