VNC Client for the web or apache2 ? Java interface?


Hello,

I would like to give an online course on how to use linux desktop (opensource, opensuse) using my Apache2 server.

People don't want to install / or use xtightvncviewer because on windows, it requires to be installed on it.

Is there any good VNC Client for the web/apache2 ? Java interface? (Free Code of course)
I saw versatile vnc on github.

Kind regards

1. The vncviewer executibles, the vnc client applications, generally are single executibles on all platforms and many do not require installation. I recommend using those portable clients if all you need is the client piece.

2. VNC is not a secure protocol. It is even more open to subversion than Microsofts RDP (which even Microsoft no longer uses) and needs to be secured by SSH tunnel or VPN. Opening it to a web interface can be useful, but best if you consider the security implications now rather than after it is too late.

3. If you really want to do that anyway, look up noVNC.
