VNC Viewer - Unencrypted connection warning


I am using VNC Viewer to connect to my server, and it warns me that the connection will not be encrypted. Is there a free version that will allow the connection to be secured and encrypted?

You could tunnel VNC over ssh.
e.g. see http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-s...-via-internet/

Do you need a GUI interface on the server?

You can try SSVNC, which supports SSL.

Yes, I would prefer one. I will also check this out.

Also depends on your topology. If you don't care that someone may view this then just use it.

Other products have security enabled in their vnc version. Teamviewer had or maybe still has an issue but a lot of people use it.

There are plenty of ways to secure free vnc too. Some so secure it won't go over the web.
