UltraVNC review by Support Agent

I would recommend UltraVNC for use to anyone who has a network of a couple PC's, as it is easy and fast to connect to the Remote PC and check what is happening with it. In case some files need to be change, UltraVNC has that ability as well, which can speed up troubleshooting process as well.

Pros

I like using this tool as I can easily connect between PS's on the same network ( in my case ) and I can check what is happening with each PC in timely manner. Also, I am able to share files between these PC's which can be really useful when I need to edit and upload some configuration file for instance. Of course, this connection is always password protected.

Cons

UltraVNC sometimes tends to bug, which is why I need to path through Services to the affected PC and check if there was any issues with it's Services. It would be nice to have a feedback, whenever appropriate Service is not running properly or it has some issues.

Reasons for Switching to UltraVNC

I made a switch from VNC Connect because of my customers, who back in the time preferred another type of connection ( TightVNC, UltraVNC and so on ).

Great open source solution for remote computer management and diagnostics

The UltraVNC Single Click version has been great to provide to my clients without having to worry about licensing issues. Many of them are computer novices so not having to talk them through installing more complex software and changing network settings has been a real time saver.

Pros

UltraVNC is a great open source solution for remote desktop connections and being free for commercial use means big savings if you've got a lot of users that need occasional support. The software is small and easy to install and includes a variety of options to suit different Internet connection speeds. There's also a Single Click version that allows you to create a custom executable that can be distributed to customers preconfigured to connect to your IP address which saves them needing to configure the firewall at their end to support incoming connections.

Cons

Compared to some proprietary software like Microsoft Remote Desktop and TeamViewer the screen updates appear to be a little slower and there can be occasional glitches that need a screen repaint. While not a big deal for remote support incidents it may be worth looking at other options if you're intending working over a remote connection for extended periods of time.

Over complicated

As an ad-hoc user and the test equipment I hire comes with this pre-installed.. Both times I have wasted hours of valuable time setting up - Previously used RealVNC with no problems.

Pros

None, easier and simpler solutions available

Cons

Complete load of c***, and time wasting to set up for such a simple application. Back to basics please!

Small but functional VNC tool

Easy to use solution, no worries regarding licensing or user session management, easy to install.

Pros

For someone that uses remote servers for their work having trustworthy vnc connection is crucial. I used Ultra VNC for half year and I can say that this is great solution if you want simplicity. It’s open source, works even when connection is slow, very easy to navigate, you need only server name and password to connect.

Cons

I’d prefer to have some optimizations for really slow networks for example do not refreshing the screen or refreshing partially.

Simple and Effective

We love that its simple to implement and use with our existing system

Pros

After everything is configured Ultra VNC is a breeze to use, all we need is the PC name and password.

Cons

I with Ultra VNC had a function to black out the users screen. We find that they often don't understand that we need them to stop what they're doing in order for us to help so a fight over the curser ensues. For the same reason a chat feature would be nice.

Auditing with VNC

Great product, great price i would recommend this product to anyone.

Pros

VNC allows us to Audit or monitor our employees screens for compliance purposes without them ever knowing we are watching.

Cons

at times when auditing our employees we have noticed that it can cause a very slight delay on the employees screen.
