VNC is light and sleek with the quick setup, was impressed with the quick setup despite poor Internet connection outdoor. TeamViewer is good, but the pricing is not as good as VNC. Both do the basic job, but VNC still outperform TeamViewer in terms of performance and ease of use.

TeamViewer is another easy to use remote connectivity software that I like for fast connection and little lag. TeamViewer is good for screen sharing. I often prefer VNC Connect for its cross platform compatibility and its mobile access capability. TeamViewer is a little pricey and by comparison is more clunky to use than VNC Connect.

The best part is that [the] VNC Connect application supports multi-platform compatibility with Windows and Linux systems. In addition, it is simple, and the session is approved or unapproved, which enables us to provide quick support in the business process. The running service usually does its job without any problems, no additional action is required.

With so many things tech-related we have many options and ways to accomplish the same thing. I think one of the important things to remember is the companies track record and support record for their users. In our experience, VNC Connect has been able to be competitive in all these areas. Costs analysis always comes up no matter who you talk to and again competitive with the others.

VNC Connect works just as well as the top products on the market. At the time VNC Connect was priced better and provided us with a simple reliable tool. VNC Connect works well cross-platform which is important to our institute as we are a 60/40 PC to Mac ratio. Reliability cross-platform is critical to our environment.

I like VNC over TeamViewer and Microsoft Remote Desktop Services. TeamViewer seems slower than VNC and is more expensive. Microsoft RDP takes over the console so users cannot interact in any way.

VNC Connect stacks up very well to other competitors. With this simple program, you can remotely connect and access other computers with the same VNC Connect agent installed. The only reason we're moving away from using this is that our current Ninja RMM Tools computer monitoring agent includes the TeamViewer tool for us to use.

The only VNC you need.

Like I have mentioned before, depending on what you need, RealVNC may not be the best fit. It's the does-it-all Enterprise ready version produced by the original manufacturers. Installation's pretty simple, it's deployable if needed and it sports a lot of party tricks. However, TightVNC, UltraVNC or even TeamViewer may be what you need depending on your circumstances, requirements and budget.

VNC - good in its day

I'm afraid that the only thing VNC has going for it is that it's free. Otherwise ConnectWise is an infinitely superior product and one which I would heartily recommend. We also looked at Bomgar, but the pricing there was astronomical in comparison with Connectwise. The free remote access software contained within the Avast/AVG Cloudcare product is also excellent.

VNC works really well. It gives a superior level of access compared to far more expensive products such as GoToAssist or WebEx Support Center, and does so at a tiny fraction of the cost. It also consumes far fewer resources than either of those two competing products. It's an easy recommendation for me to make versus them.

We have been using VNC for many years now and continue to use VNC due to its reliability and ease of use. When we need quick access to a remote computer for troubleshooting, VNC doesn't glitch or cause disconnects. Sometimes it may run slow but that is due to network issues, not the VNC program. Overall, VNC is reliable and user-friendly.

TeamViewer seems to crash often, causing the TeamViewer host to have to be restarted. The performance isn't comparable to RealVNC and the GUI isn't very intuitive. TeamViewer does shine better when using it for external connections, but RealVNC is moe lightweight and adaptable as an internal solution. If you're working with internal servers, use RealVNC.
