Simple question - viewer reverse desktop option?

Postby regi » 2011-01-11 04:07

Great program. Powerful, simple.

wondering...is there a way for the "viewer" to reverse share my desktop with the client "server"?

If so, how?

thx :)

your exact request have solution:
open source until version 2.0
TeamViewer

since 3.0 is NOT open source.
free for personal usage
paid for business

anyway, not possible with ultravnc include inside chunkvnc without modification code source

Thanks Redge. I've used Teamviewer, but wasn't aware that 2.0 was open source. (teamviewer >v2 is a great tool to help "mom", but is too expensive otherwise...especially when UltraVNC is almost as good!)

And THANK YOU SUPERCOE for the excellent work on ChunkVNC. I'll look fwd to the next release which will include a reverse-sharing desktop !! :wink:

(Er...any timeframe on the next release of chunkVNC??) :roll:

Sorry regi, I don't give time frames but since others have requested similar gotomeeting type features I'll look at it more seriously now.

It wouldn't be that hard to implement but it would increase the size of InstantSupport.exe because I'd have to include the UltraVNC viewer.

Maybe I'll make it a compiler option. :)
