    "Good Product for Free"

    July 05, 2013   |   By jsoulesone

    Version: TightVNC (64 bit) 2.7.7

    Pros

    Easy to set up and use. I used the download from the TightVNC web site ( so no bloatware and followed the installation instructions from the documentation.

    Cons

    Some lag between the viewer and the server, but that may be on my limited knowledge. Tolerable for now. So I don't really consider it a con against the program.

    Summary

    I've been using TightVNC on three laptops and a desktop. Only one is still running Vista. I like the idea that I don't have to run into the other rooms to deal with tech issues.

    "free vnc server and viewer"

    June 03, 2013   |   By hglasimpson

    Version: TightVNC (64 bit) 2.7.3

    Pros

    free and isn't affected by the fact that we have Mac OS and Linux machines connecting to a Windows machine; has 32-bit and 64-bit versions; also has web/java included in server (e.g. use your web browser and go to http://machine-server-installed-on.whatever.com:5800)

    Cons

    CNET installer is full of bloatware (but at least behaves on uninstall); the actual vnc installer is bloatware free (so con against CNET), and the software runs well (with tiny amounts of jitter, but VNC is not the best protocol to begin with)

    Summary

    This is an excellent and free VNC viewer and server; just be sure to grab your correct bit (i.e. TightVNC comes in 32-bit and 64-bit, so use the "direct download link" link under the big green CNET download button); also note: if you are using Mac Screen Sharing to connect to the server, you'll have to turn on the password for vnc viewer (recommended anyway); however, I was never successful in getting screen sharing to work, just used the web/java.

    "Great product, easy to use"

    March 21, 2013   |   By FitOner

    Version: TightVNC (64 bit) 2.6.4

    Pros

    Easy to use and easy to log in from PC to Mac.

    Cons

    1. GUI could use some upgrades.
    2. Hidden add-on/bloatware was downloaded when embedded in the download from the TightVNC website. Was a browser add-on. Had to uninstall it from the PC.

    Summary

    Works well. Easy to use. Able to view Mac from PC and control it.
    GUI could use some finessing.
    Hidden add-on/bloatware was in with the download. Had to uninstall the bloatware.

    3 stars because, I understand it is free and they need to make their money by using ads and such, BUT please disclose this in the download and give the option to opt out.

    "Exactly what I was looking for"

    March 16, 2013   |   By 2Thumbz

    Version: TightVNC (64 bit) 2.6.4

    Pros

    Can install as client only if you don't need server.
    PC connects to Mac without installing any Mac SW.
    No cloud account or external login needed.
    Easy local LAN setup.
    Free!

    Cons

    Hard to find in CNET Downloads... I found a reference to this software in a blog! These guys deserve to be discovered.

    Summary

    For my purpose - connecting my PC to a Mac mini music server that sits in my audio system with no screen or keyboard - TightVNC is exactly what I was looking for. Shame it wasn't easy to find on CNET.
