    VNCviewer


    I'm searching for a VNC viewer which works under both Linux and Windows.
    The reason is I'm a network administrator, and I would like to see what the users are doing on their Windows PC's, while I'm on the Linux server.

    I did some google searches, but the only page I found really interesting gives a link to a download site which doesn't exist anymore...

    http://www.linuxnetmag.com/nl/nlvnc1.html (Dutch site)
    It says the downloads are on http://www.uk.research.att.com , but that domain doesn't exist...

    can anyone point out the VNC viewer I'm searching for?

    Regards,

    René

    afaik any vncviewer will work.
    If the windows machine is running a vncserver, any vncviewer (windows or linux) should be able to connect to it.

    I personally use tightvnc, which has clients and servers for several operating systems.

    RealVNC and TightVNC are probably the most used implementations of VNC.

    Guess you're a bit confused lol.

    Anyway: TightVNC is working, I can view the windows desktop.
    In Windows I had to enter a password and set options, how do I set these options in Linux? (Where's the configuration file?).
