Overall Satisfaction with VNC Connect

We used RealVNC as an alternative tool for connecting to our remote Servers and Workstations. We needed a fast tool to take control of this devices as we were sitting in front of them in order to solve critical issues affecting the company's productivity.

All our branches were remote locations in different states and this didn't make it easy connecting to them via other tools like LogMeIn and others. As soon as we activated our MLPS, we were able to connect on the go by just making a call from our CMDB to open RealVNC and connect to this remote locations.
  • Quick connect, just type the IP or the computer ID name, and that's it, you are connected.
  • Fast response, but you can also adjust the quality of the connection on slower connections.
  • Sharing screen is quite easy.
  • More shortcuts if you are using a connecting tool inside another tool.
  • A more immersive tutorial, if the users do not know how to use it, figuring it out can be hard and frustrating
  • Positive. We reduced travel for the IT department for at least 50%
  • Connecting to Servers to do basic tasks was easier this way.
  • Negative, sometimes after a reboot, the service did not start so we have to ask for other non-IT users to interact with Servers.
If you do not have a working internet connection, you can rule LogMeIn out as it is not a viable solution! NetSupport is fairly more advanced and has many more capabilities that VNC does not support so this is not a fair comparison!
Easy and quick connection to all computers in your network.
Accessing Remote computer that are in other locations.
Taking control of a workstation to provide support.
