ThinVNC brings pure-web Remote Desktop Access to a MS Windows PC from any OS, using any HTML5-compliant browser. ThinVNC is free for non-commercial use.


Remotely access a PC desktop using just a standard Web Browser

Cybele Software, Inc. is pleased to announce the final release of ThinVNC 1.0, a software solution that allows users to remotely access a PC desktop using just a standard Web Browser. Regardless of the computer or mobile operating system, ThinVNC provides native, secure data transmission using HTTP and SSL.

ThinVNC works on any HTML5-compliant web browser and does not require any additional plugin, add-on or installation of any kind on the client side. ThinVNC exploits HTML5 canvas to display a remote PC desktop, taking full advantage of WebSockets, AJAX, JSON and HTML5 technologies. The implementation of techniques not available in traditional AT&T RFB protocol impart ThinVNC a remarkable performance, rivaling with any traditional VNC.

ThinVNC is composed by a server-side executable program and an HTML5 JavaScript client. The web client connects to ThinVNC server using AJAX and WebSockets (when available) over SSL and displays the remote PC desktop, enabling full remote mouse and keyboard control.

ThinVNC also includes a Presentation Manager to organize demonstrations, meetings or trainings on the host computer. Running on the web browser, ThinVNC removes the need of a "viewer" download, making non-tech people attendance a smooth experience, free of any setup issue.

On corporate environments, ThinVNC can be setup as a gateway to proxy other ThinVNC instances. While publishing just one IP, users can remotely gain access to PC desktops across the LAN just by entering the internal IP address/PC name on the welcome screen.
