Description : Enhanced TightVNC viewer with SSL/SSH tunnel helper
VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is, in essence, a remote display system which allows you to view a
computing `desktop' environment not only on the machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the Internet and from a
wide variety of machine architectures.
SSVNC is two things:
- An enhanced version of the TightVNC client with support for more encodings and color modes, support for x11vnc and
UltraVNC extensions, dynamic screen resizing, an improved popup menu, etc.
- A GUI that helps set up an SSL (using stunnel) or SSH tunnel to connect to the VNC server through, as well as forwarding
of ports for audio (esound/aRts), SMB, CUPS etc.
