Release date: 
Sunday, 19 May, 2024



TightVNC Java Viewer is a fully-functional remote control program written in Java. It can work on any computer where Java is installed.
  • It connects to another computer and displays its live remote desktop.
  • It lets you control the remote computer with your mouse and keyboard, just like you would do it sitting in the front of that computer.
It requires that the remote computer is running any type of VNC-compatible server software (standard VNC, TightVNC, UltraVNC, x11vnc, Apple Remote Desktop in Mac OS X, Xen/HVM, VMWare, Qemu etc.). For Windows systems, TightVNC Server is a recommended option.
This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.

To run it as an application, just execute the JAR file (tightvnc-jviewer.jar), e.g. double-click it in the Windows Explorer. If Java Runtime is installed on your computer correctly, that should be enough. You will be prompted for the TightVNC Server to connect to. If you would like to start the viewer from the command line, here are a few examples: java -jar tightvnc-jviewer.jar java -jar tightvnc-jviewer.jar hostname java -jar tightvnc-jviewer.jar -port=nnn hostname java -jar tightvnc-jviewer.jar -port=nnn -host=hostname ... where hostname and nnn should be replaced with the actual hostname and port number correspondingly. Note that you can use an IP address as a hostname. Port 5900 will be used if not specified. Important: the syntax like hostname:display or hostname::port is not supported in this version of TightVNC Java Viewer. For more command line params info run: java -jar tightvnc-jviewer.jar -help Finally, if you would like to use the viewer as an applet, please see the example HTML page included (viewer-applet-example.html). Compiling from the sources ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To compile TightVNC Java Viewer from the source code, you need to have JDK (Java Development Kit) installed (http://java.oracle.com). The sources are compatible with Java 6. Just run "gradlew" command at the source root directory ("gradlew.bat" for MS Windows OS). This command will download Gradle build tool and generate tightvnc-jviewer.jar executable file. The file will be located at ./dist/tightvnc-jviewer-[version]/ directory. ====================================================================== Thank you for using TightVNC!
