RealVNC Connect Programs - Linux


VNC Connect consists of VNC Server for the computer you want to control, VNC Viewer for the device you want to control from, and a host of supporting programs.

Under Linux, one man page is installed for each program that can be operated from the command line; these are reprinted below. Note that the vncviewervncpasswd and vnclicense man pages might also be useful for Windows and Mac.
