How to Use VNC Virtual Network Computing to Control a Computer

VNC (Virtual Network Computing) is a useful tool which allows you to control networked PCs from any location within the network as if you were sitting in front of the target computer. VNC creates a "virtual desktop," allowing you to operate the remote machine in exactly the same way you normally would.

  1. Visit RealVNC to obtain a copy of the VNC software. It is free for personal use.
  2. Install VNC on all machines which you plan to access remotely.
  3. Choose "service mode" during installation. This allows VNC to run as a Windows service, which offers resource-management advantages.
  4. Confirm that VNC is running on all machines. If the service is running, there will be an icon in the system tray showing the letters "VNC."
  5. To access another machine from your current location, click Start > All Programs > RealVNC > VNC Viewer 4 > Run VNC Viewer. A small input box will appear. Type the IP address of the known remote computer and click OK. You are now successfully connected.
While VNC is primarily a productivity tool, it can also be used to play any number of amusing tricks on unsuspecting users. If you are at home or among friends, try taking over a user's desktop without their knowledge and watch the ensuing chaos. They will wonder why their mouse pointer suddenly has a mind of its own. For extra hilarity, try starting Notepad or something similar and typing in cryptic "messages from beyond." Needless to say, do not secretly install VNC on the computer of your boss or supervisor for these purposes. He or she will not be amused, and you will probably find yourself with a sudden excess of free time.

  • Make sure that your network is secure before installing VNC. If the network is vulnerable, there is a risk of intruders gaining direct unauthorized access to the machines on your network. Should this occur, the intruders will have the ability to do a great deal of damage. If your network connects to the internet, make sure that a firewall is in use, and that proper security procedures are observed.
  • A security hole in RealVNC could be used to log in without a password. Make sure you have the latest version.
