There are times when you have to access your computer remotely, whether it be to retrieve files or to complete a task. While there are tons of different options available out there to do that, RealVNC Free Edition is certainly a great option.
This software basically acts as a remote control for computers. It works over the Internet and uses basic TCP/IP technology in order to control a computer remotely. RealVNC Free acts as a client-server setup meaning you should have the software installed on both systems which are interacting with each other.
If you're using one of the more premium versions of this program, your connection can also be fully encrypted but the free version unfortunately lacks that option.
In order to remain secure and to prevent people from accessing your remote system after it's connected to the Internet, you should set a password so that unwanted visitors are not granted access.
By installing RealVNC, you are given immediate and easy access to remote computing and giving access to the desktop of a remote system.
