VNC Enterprise update
RealVNC has announced an update to VNC Enterprise Edition, its remote access software for Mac, Windows and Unix systems. The program is used to assume (authorized) control of another computer, regardless of its operating system. The upcoming release introduces support for a variety of cellphones, including the iPhone, all of which will be able to control a computer. Moreover, system administrators will be able to manage a corporation's phones through VNC.
Betas for mobile support are expected sometime after the Symbian Smartphone Show, which ends October 22nd, and the final products are due in early 2009. Aside from the iPhone, supported handheld platforms will include Symbian, Linux, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile. The Mac version of VNC Enterprise runs on Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later; licensing costs must be obtained from RealVNC.
