Window title independent of computer name

It would be a really useful addition to be able to give each connection a certain label, which is then used as the taskbar/window title. Currently I have multiple VNC session open and all have very similar and unreadable titles like fecs0394fw2 (and no, changing the machine names is not an option in a large company). As I easily confuse all those similar names, it would be much better, if it would read "Test 1", "Test 2", "Continous build", "Wiki server" etc. as taskbar/window title.

Maybe as an option, but in my opinion that would <i>stink</i> as a default operation. Showing the target's host name and/or IP address is a much better default than what you're suggesting.

That said, I think some multiviewer programs like mremoteNG and iTalc can do what you describe.

you need alias name for the remote computer.
you can use third party software vnc manager
deploy/manage ultravnc, vnc, etc...

Cool list, redge. Would you consider adding mremote, mremoteNG, and iTalc to it?

As far as I know, the mremotes are the only open source multipane applications with both VNC and RDP support...
