VNC stands for "Virtual Network Computing". emWin VNC Server uses the RFB protocol which makes it possible to use any VNC client.
Using a VNC connection allows the user to remote control the 'desktop' of the embedded target device and can be controlled with the PCs mouse and keyboard. A device running the VNC Server does not require a display and combined with 'IP over USB' not even an Ethernet connector.
With an underlying file system (e.g. emFile) on server side it is also possible to transfer files from and to the target. This requires the emVNC Client, since there is no standard for the file transfer protocol.
The emVNC Client offers you the following features:
- Remember the last connections
- Remember passwords
- Zoom in and out of the hosts desktop
- File transfer
- Cross platform (Windows, Mac, Linux)
- Free tool
- TCP/IP stack: Since the communication between the server and the viewer is based on a TCP/IP connection, VNC requires a TCP/IP stack.
A TCP/IP stack needs to be present. That is NOT part of emWin. The interface of the VNC Server ensures that any TCP/IP stack can be used.
- Multi-tasking: The VNC Server needs to run as a separate thread. Therefore a multi-tasking system is required to use the emWin VNC Server.
- File system: Required only if the file transfer feature should be used.
The only requirement is one of the following operating systems:
