VNC is a family of servers and clients that provide remote access to your Windows, Mac, or Unix/Linux workstation over any TCP/IP connection such as an Internet connection, LAN connection, BlueTooth or WiFi connection. (For more information on VNC, see the VNC homepage)

PalmVNC is the VNC client for the Palm OS® platform. It was originally written by Vladimir Minenko, providing black-and-white access to your PC from the original Palm Pilot devices. Harakan Software later took over the development of the program, to exploit the functionality of newer Palm models such as the Palm IIIc and Palm V series. (For more information, see the PalmVNC homepage). The latest version release by Harakan software was 1.40.

PalmVNC 2.0 is the latest evolution of PalmVNC. Among other improvements, it adds support for the enhanced screen resolutions of the latest models from Sony and Palm™, and Palm OS® 5 compatibility.
