Another VNC viewer alternative
Authored by: werikblack on Oct 11, '07 08:12:00AM
The viewer is not free for general use. It's free to download, but you are only licensed to use it if you use it with one of the RealVNC products. Just because it's not serialized or time-limited doesn't mean that you're not violating the license. From the viewer license agreement:

The Software is to be used in conjunction with at least one licensed copy of VNC Server Enterprise Edition or of any other RealVNC Server product explicitly stated to qualify for use with the Software ("the Server").

Yeah, sadly. I'm a computer technician and can pick out the useful information in a license in seconds, generally. Most of the stuff is legalese, so you just need to know which area to look for, and most read pretty much the same. You wouldn't believe (or maybe you would) how many people believe that everything is a "site license." Explaining volume license versus standard per-seat, upgrade (throw away the original), and OEM is a pain at times.
