What is a VNC Client?

A VNC Client can connect to a computer running a VNC Server, see its screen and control the mouse and the keyboard.

How to use FlashLight-VNC?

  1. You need to have a computer running a VNC Server: you can download TightVNC, UltraVNC, TurboVNC, VineVNC, X11VNC or any other VNC server supporting Tight Encoding...

    Won't work with RealVNC server for now: it doesn't support Tight encoding.

  2. Configure Flash Security Sandbox (look for "flash security settings" on the Internet) or host the swf on a HTTP server on the computer running the VNC Server
  3. Connect and enjoy!

Note: running the server and client on the same computer will result in a lot of Larsen effect (of course!) and won't be relevant.
