RealVNC has released its flagship VNC product for the Raspberry Pi, enabling users to connect to their Pi from any Windows, Mac or Linux computer. Once VNC has been downloaded to the Pi users can apply a Free license or, for an enhanced set of features, a Personal or Enterprise license. Raspberry Pi users will also be able to connect to their Pi from an iPad, iPhone, Android or Chrome device by downloading RealVNC’s free VNC Viewer app which is available in the Apple App Store, Google Play or the Chrome web store.
VNC can be used with Raspberry Pi in two ways. If the Raspberry Pi is connected to a monitor or TV and is running a graphical desktop, the connected user can see what a user sitting in front of the Pi would see. If the Pi is not running a graphical desktop, then graphical remote access can still be obtained by creating a virtual desktop instead.
