One of your friends ask you for help troubleshooting some problems on his computer? Instead of trying to figure out what’s going on and trying to fix the problem over the phone, use TightVNC to create a remote connection and provide live assistance. By using this tool, you can access the desktop – as well as the entire filesystem and all programs – of the target computer. This allows you to see what’s wrong and perform the necessary procedures quickly and easily. Furthermore, people have been successfully using this program for interactive tutorials as well.
As soon as you install the program and run through the setup wizard on the target machine, you can initiate a connection from any other computer, as long as both machines are connected to the Internet. You don’t have to be in the same network – or even on the same continent, for that matter. Don’t worry about your privacy; access is gained by using the correct IP address and a strong password that you can change. Also, the TightVNC program must be running for anyone to connect to your PC. The program works on slow modem connections as well, although things can get a bit slow at times. All in all, this is the program you need for remote troubleshooting!
TightVNC is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in remote connection category and is available to all software users as a free download.
