TightVNC vs Remote Ripple: What’s Better?

Most likely, the answer is Remote Ripple! However, please read below.

  • TightVNC includes both server and viewer. Remote Ripple includes only the viewer part. To connect to a remote machine, install and run TightVNC Server on that PC. Or use any other VNC server available on that machine.
  • TightVNC Viewer is a Windows 95 style application, while Remote Ripple for Windows has modern interface with tabs and VNC connection manager. If you work on Windows, it’s a good idea to use Remote Ripple instead of TightVNC Viewer. For the server side, use TightVNC.
  • Remote Ripple for Windows does not implement a few features of TightVNC Viewer yet. For example, Remote Ripple does not support reverse connections (so called listening mode). This will be fixed soon.
  • Remote Ripple will be actively developed, major new features will be introduced in each new version. In TightVNC Viewer, only bugs and problems will be fixed. However, TightVNC Server will be developed further, e.g. we have plans to add multi-monitor support, encryption, support for WebSocket protocol and so on.
  • Remote Ripple is available on various modern platforms, while TightVNC version 2 supports Windows only (though Java Viewer exists as well).
  • TightVNC is Open Source and Free Software. Remote Ripple is not Open Source, but it’s free to use, even for commercial purposes.

Besides TightVNC and Remote Ripple, we offer a number of other alternatives. Please continue reading, maybe there’s something that perfectly meets your requirements. 🙂

MightyViewer, a VNC Monitoring Tool

MightyViewer is similar to Remote Ripple, but it’s focused monitoring multiple VNC remote desktops.

However, it can be seen as a better version of Remote Ripple. It presents a different way of managing VNC connections, and can update a gallery of live remote desktop thumbnails in real time. Double-clicking on any thumbnail will open a new VNC viewer tab, just like in Remote Ripple.

Bypass Firewalls and Routers with Unidostup

With TightVNC, you cannot just make connections between any hosts over Internet. You either work in a local-area network, or need to configure VPNs, port forwarding and other complex things to bypass firewalls, NATs and routers.

To solve this problem, we introduce Unidostup, business-targeted remote assistance and remote access solution. With Unidostup, you setup new Commutator software on a server which is accessible from all locations where you need remote desktop connectivity, and easily make connections between all your computers, using access codes instead of IP addresses.

Unidostup is on-premises software, and you get a perpetual license. In other words, it’s not a cloud service that can stop working for you some day. Instead, you purchase the software, install it on your own computers and fully control the system.
