VNC - Virtual Network Computing, it lets me view and use other computers over a network or the internet. Cool, huh? According to it’s website however it does not support Vista, well at least the free one does not. Below, that is so cut off…

And that was the free version...

I think it meant the PC being controlled (the one you are connecting to) can't be Vista. You got Vista as host, but 2k as the computer being controlled.

It's probably because RealVNC is interested in making money ... so by making you think that you need the paid version for Vista, more people will buy it. However, when they later on come across the UltraVNC or TightVNC sites, they'll feel a little ripped off. :P

I've controlled Vista PCs using vnc... and none of them support vista in the case that your thrown off when a UAC prompt appears.

If your looking for a VNC server that will run on Vista check out the latest UltraVNC beta. It runs quite well on Vista.

If your just using the client app on Vista just about any VNC client will work. I've used the RealVNC, UltraVNC and TightVNC clients on Vista and they all work just fine.
