Is VNC Free??
Ive never really looked into VNC, ultra VNC and Real VNC extra and wondered is there a free version, ultra VNC??
I have a microsoft remote assistance method in place but it requires the user to "accept" me taking control, so i'd like to have a better solution in place but only if it is free or close to?
Can anyone help me out and if it costs give me a rough price guide?

UltraVNC is certainly free, if you want another option there is also iTalc, which runs on a similar back end to VNC but offers you to be able to view many desktops at once and all that jazz ..

There is both free versions and paid for versions. The most popular version of VNC is RealVNC. They do both free and paid for versions.

yes we use Skeep for this - downloads from here... Skeep VNC Console | Download Skeep VNC Console software for free at SourceForge.net
it's a very good console for deploying and using VNC.

when we used vnc we used "tightvnc" because it had no system tray icon

There is RealVNC , TightVNC and UltraVNC. Each has it’s advantages and disadvantages. Most popular one is RealVNC but if you’re upto it, experiment with all three and choose the one that works for you best. By default, communication between client and server is in clear text on port 5900. However, you can easily route all traffic via SSH tunnel. Here is a quick way of setting it up if you have access to command line shell:

We use UltraVNC here, due to the extra features and it being the default with Skeep (which is also a brilliant tool).
