computerVNC vs UltraVNC

VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing, and is a graphical sharing system that uses the RFB protocol, and you can remotely control another computer through the server. There is an increase in the usage of these technologies, specially by people who are handling networks between their offices and home computers, as they are able to access the remote computer through their own home computer and vice versa. Large companies also require having access to different departments in order to have better management coordination. There are many variants of these functions, and one of them is the UltraVNC.

Difference in operations

This is considered to be software that allows you to go from one computer to the other, and collect data in a certain manner.
