Use TightVNC to remote access another computer

There are many occassions where you would like to have access to another computer a distance away, without physically there in front of the computer. How do you do it? The answer is remote access.

There are various remote access software available, some even support access from mobile devices. But our interest today is to find the easiest and cheapest solution. What could be cheaper than free? Yes, there is one very widely used remote access software which is absolutely free! It’s none other than TightVNC.

TightVNC is a free remote access software based on the popular VNC software (which is not free). With TightVNC, you can see the desktop of a remote machine and control it with your local mouse and keyboard, just like you would do it sitting in the front of that computer!

This is so cool, now can I have some screenshots please. I want to see if they look good enough for my computer. Yes, of course, here you are.
