Alkit VNC is a modified version of the 'Virtual Network Computing' software
developed by AT&T Laboratories
Cambridge. The original VNC applications is, "in essence, a remote
display system which allows you to view a computing 'desktop' environment
not only on the machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the Internet
and from a wide variety of machine architectures. " The modifications by
Alkit Communications are intended to make the software more useful
for application sharing purposes in remote collaboration settings. This
version makes it possible to share a single window instead of sharing the
full desktop. In collaboration scenarios, one typically wants to share
one application that is used collaboratively. It is still possible to share
the full desktop if desired.
Alkit VNC is distributed freely under the GNU
