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