virtual network computingShort for Virtual Network Computing, VNC was first developed by Quentin Stafford-Fraser at AT&T and enables users to control another computer remotely. What makes VNC a great utility is that it enables users to control remotely numerous computers even if they are not running the same platform. For example, a user may be using Microsoft Windows and remotely connect to other Windows computers, Linux computers, or even Mac computers. Even better is that this utility can be used for free.
