TeamViewer is More than a Tool for Remote Connections
In contrast to classic VNC software for clients and servers, TeamViewer offers a series of additional administrative functions for remote support: you can establish effective security management by the assigning authorisations and licenses in the management console. This lets you set up and assign guidelines for editing and password entry rights, for example.
For administering complex support tasks you also have the option of using TeamViewer servicecamp. This makes it possible to integrate a ticket system with all the relevant functions for administering requests. You can group requests, prioritise and set up queues.
TeamViewer as an All-in-One Solution for Mobile Working
Through extensive remote functions, universal compatibility and high connection speed, TeamViewer creates the ideal conditions for trouble-free mobile working. TeamViewer goes far beyond the functions of VNC by also providing full access to your office computer. This way, you can not only get access to your data, but also operate programs and print remotely.
TeamViewer is also a versatile collaboration tool. For example, you can create online meetings with colleagues in no time at all. During these you can also share screen content.
Sensitive data remains protected with TeamViewer, regardless of the location. AES-based end-to-end session encryptions and RSA public/private key exchange are the most effective protection against unauthorised access.
Simple set-up with TeamViewer
You can set up TeamViewer remote connections through ports that have already been made available. Unlike when setting up VNC, no additional ports must be made available.
Comprehensive platform connections
As an all-in-one solution, TeamViewer is suitable for remote support and remote access on PCs, servers and mobile devices.
Initiate reboots and installations
Remote connections through TeamViewer make it possible to initiate reboots and program installations on unattended computers.
How does VNC technology work?
VNC uses a specialized network protocol, RFB (Remote Framebuffer), in order to transmit screen pixel data from one computer to another computer over a network. VNC clients share user input, e.g. keystrokes, mouse movements, and clicks, with the server. The VNC servers capture the local display framebuffer contents and share them back with the client where they are then translated into local input.
Is VNC secure?
VNC uses encryption during the initial connection and login since passwords are not sent in plain-text. The problem arises once connected as the VNC is then unencrypted and could fall prey to hackers. In contrast, TeamViewer uses AES-based end-to-end session encryptions as well as RSA public/private key exchange to prevent unauthorised access and keep your data safe at all times.
What is the difference between VNC and TeamViewer?
Aside from the differences in technical setup and security between TeamViewer and VNC software, TeamViewer also features additional online collaboration and remote support functions. In short, while VNC is a remote control solution, TeamViewer is an all-in-one solution. With TeamViewer, you can conduct online meetings, manage a ticket support system with TeamViewer servicecamp, and plenty more.
