not a bad remote VNC but not for the novice. Team-viewer has my top pick for it's simplicity.

ChangeLog:

Server + Viewer:

Integrated support for SecureVNC plugin.
Fix recursive clipboard issues when several VNC, RDP, VM, etc sessions are nested.
Fix hangs in clipboard handling.
Support for HTML and RTF clipboard formats.
Support for Unicode clipboard text.
Clipboard text is compressed when transferring.
libjpeg library replaced with libjpeg-turbo which includes optimized assembly code for both x86 and x64.
Zlib updated to latest version.
DSM plugins no longer cause the server/viewer to send any additional messages or prefix bytes. This eliminates 41 bytes of network traffic per message.
Immediately subsequent socket writes are coalesced to minimize unnecessary packets. This eliminates 40 bytes of network overhead for most messages, and more in other cases.
RFB 3.8

Viewer only:

Fix crash when changing framebuffer dimensions with cache encoding enabled.
Fix disconnect when changing framebuffer dimensions.
Some menu reorganization.
Throttling for mouse move messages to prevent saturating output buffer with pointer updates.
Queueing implemented for outgoing writes; this eliminates some overhead from every message.
Preemptive update requests.
Enable cache encoding from commandline, /enablecache
Fixed stability issue in Tight encoding (merged from TightVNC)
Fixed recovery / resynchronization attempts in update handler due to bypassing DSM plugin when flushing input buffer, leading to unsynchronized encryption states.

Defaults settings could have been made better, video driver for improved speed needs a lot of work, lots of keys don't work remotely (not, I'm not talking about Ctrl+Alt+Del), otherwise a very good software.

TeamViewer is outstanding, but UltraVNC shouldn't be downgraded because of it. They're both five-star programs.

it's got some powerful features, but this software like many like it should only be used if you don't mind reading through the documentation, and even then you will still be left with many confused aspects,

The biggest confusion that I still read about in forum's, is the concept

"Server" and "Viewer"

A bit like remote desktop, Host & Client,

For the beginners it's quite amazing how these concepts are hard to grasp,
And like wise, the same issues can be seen in programs like "RealVNC" & "UltraVNC",

For the absolute beginner "TeamViewer" is the way to go,

Hopefully, Programs like "UltraVNC" will eventually go though a revolutionary GUI Rewrite,

Because there all based on the same theme, one can see so many similarities between them,

What they need is a new novice interface, or perhaps a driven wizard that guides the new user through the complex interface options that are given to the user,

Which is what "TeamViewer" has done, they have rewritten the entire GUI interface from scratch, and made it 21st century worthy,

"UltraVNC" and even "RealVNC" is still based on the old concepts, even the look, and the thinking behind the interface is till the old way's,

Programs like "TeamViewer", and "LogMeIn"
are the way forward, the complexities are still there, but hidden from the user, having a box open with 20 different settings is enough to put most people of, and the thing is, efficiency is the new way of thinking now, streamlining is the 21st century motto,

Programs like “UltraVNC” are so old looking, and require a huge amount of reading from the user to understand all of its options that are thrown into the users laps,

Don’t get me wrong, "UltraVNC" is a great program, and like many like it, gets the job done extremely well,

The problem is, with programs like “TeamViewer” showing what can be done, and makes "UltraVNC" look obsolete,

I feel like many does, that "RealVNC", and programs alike, really need to throw away there old thinking GUI concepts, and design a whole new GUI from scratch with streamline and efficiency being the prominent way of thinking,

But concepts aside, "UltraVNC" get's the job done well, and for its use, then max score had to be given,

but my advice, try "TeamViewer" 1st, if that doesn't do what your after, then and only then, try programs like "RealVNC" or "UltraVNC",

It's nice. But if you want to use it over the Internet, for example: access computer at office from home, you may need a software like NeoRouter (www.neorouter.com). It helps you create a virtual LAN over the internet so that you can do anything just like in a LAN.

Absolutely great for Vista, only mediocre for XP and older Microsoft OSs. There are odd configuration problems that pop up, performance isn't terrible, but also isn't as seamless as others, and the implementation of advanced features simply wasn't tested enough for them to have become default settings.

However, they have the best standalone VNC viewer of all.

If you're running XP or server 2003 (or older), stick with the TightVNC server and use the UltraVNC viewer. If you're on Vista, it's UltraVNC all the way.
