You will typically operate the two principal RealVNC Connect programs; that is:
- RealVNC Server, on the device you want to access
- RealVNC Viewer, on the device you want to access from
...using standard GUI widgets. However, you can operate these programs from the command line if you wish.
The instructions to start and stop RealVNC Server and RealVNC Viewer, and perform numerous other operations at the command line, are platform-specific. Instructions can be found here: Starting and Stopping RealVNC Connect
