Downloading VNC

The VNC system is available for general use under the conditions of the GNU General Public Licence. You should be aware of the terms and conditions of this licence, which is also contained in the distribution itself.

Please fill in the form below to download VNC. It's not required, but we'd be grateful if you filled it in. We're just curious about who's using it and what they're using it for. This information is purely for our own VNC-related use and will not be disclosed to any other party. Neither will we, in general, send any mail to any address given here. If you want to keep in touch with VNC developments after downloading, please join the mailing list

This page is part of the downloadable documentation; if you are looking at a local copy, please check the latest online version - things may have changed! 

There is some other great free software which is downloadable from our site.

We would be interested to hear any comments about your interest in VNC, your expected use, how you heard about it, etc.


Binary packages:
These include the server and viewer for a particular platform.  They all include the Java viewer. Each binary package is (very approximately) 1Mbyte in size, and the tgz version is usually the smallest.  See the  release history page for details of recent changes.
If your platform isn't listed here, somebody else may have ported VNC to it. Have a look at the contribs page.
