Development Challenges Overcome for Windows and Linux
With this release (v3.0) the emphasis was on implementation of VNC protocol for Windows and Linux on basis of tightVNC. For the Windows version, the implementation was more challenging as tightVNC code is very dependent on WinAPI. The code is also made as a completed product and was not designed for creating a separate library.

The Linux platform also had its challenges. “With Linux we had to overcome the challenge of a tightVNC is made as a monolith and it’s hardly ported. The main problems occurred while working in multithreaded application in a single thread; we had issues with multilayered window of users session display,” said Vadim Voznesenski, co-founder of the company.

With this system administration service there are no more multiple applications, no more multiple authentications needed. Everything needed for remote desktop management is at one place and accessible instantly. Remote connection is what makes a process of accessing vital services fast, easy and efficient.
