Fast remote desktop client from the developers of TightVNC. It allows you to access, view and control your PC, Mac and Unix systems remotely. As compared to competing VNC viewers, Remote Ripple offers:

- Clean and simple user interface
- Fast operation even on slow connections
- Smooth desktop scaling
- Low memory footprint

It works via Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G/LTE networks and connects straightly to your remote machines. It does not use intermediate servers and does not route your data to third-party services. While direct connections via Internet may require some configuration, they guarantee best performance and independence from online services.


From time to time, many of us need to access our “big computers” and use some “big software” installed on it. Remote Ripple allows you to do your work remotely. Also, you can:

- Monitor what's happening on your computers while you're away (use View-only mode to prevent from interfering with the desktop).
- Provide remote support to your friends and family. Assist in installing software, fix problems and demonstrate how to set up things.
- Administer servers, workstations and virtual machines remotely.
- Control your home computers while laying in a lounge chair. For example, you can use Remote Ripple as a remote control for your music or video player running on a PC.
- Copy a file forgotten on a remote host (while Remote Ripple does not support direct file transfers, it can help in transferring files with other services like Dropbox or Google Drive).

Install Remote Ripple, and find your own use cases!


To connect with Remote Ripple, make sure your target computer runs a sort of VNC server.

- If the target PC runs Windows, install a VNC server on it. We strongly recommend TightVNC as it provides best performance and compatibility with Remote Ripple. You can download your free copy of TightVNC on its Web site —

- Mac OS X systems already have a VNC server included. It's a part of Apple Remote Desktop service. To enable it, go to System Preferences, choose Sharing, enable Remote Management, press Computer Settings, check “VNC viewers may control screen with password” and enter the password you will use when connecting.

- Most Linux distributions include a number of VNC servers as well. Just install a VNC server from your package collection, and type something like vncserver or tightvncserver (or whatever command starts that particular VNC server). Typically, it will offer you to enter new VNC password and will start sharing your desktop (or create new virtual desktop for you).

- Virtualization systems (such as VMware and QEMU) often include built-in VNC servers, although they may not be enabled by default.

Can’t scale screen

I’ve been using various VNC products for many years, and was excited to have a modern viewer for the iPad. This falls short.
Good: it connects and works well. The mouse seems to work correctly with the touchpad keyboard I have on my iPad.
Bad: there doesn’t seem to be any way to scale the screen, so I can only view a very small part of the computer screen I’m connected to. There is no way to edit the connection parameters other than deleting the connection and creating a new entry.

This almost works. The screen looks good; it has a mostly usable virtual keyboard, and you can navigate a “Start Menu” by touching the screen.

But as others have said, there is no scaling control. The app seems hard coded to magnify a small peephole from the desktop to fill the iPad or iPhone screen. I tried reducing my actual desktop resolution but never got it small enough. 1440 x 900 x desktop didn’t fit on the 2160 x 1600 iPad screen. Looked like maybe 1200 x 800 would have fit. I played with encoding and image quality settings; no effect on the scaling.

Also I couldn’t execute a right-click. The mouse pointer would go to a location I touched on the iPad screen. But when I then touched the right-click button on the mouse widget, the pointer would first jump to that place (the spot under the mouse widget) on the remote screen, and THEN execute the right-click.

The client shortcomings turned out to be irrelevant in my particular situation. I had hoped to watch “Forged Alliance Forever” replays on the iPad screen. FAF ran but the refresh rate was about 3 seconds / frame. Probably a server limitation. So, Remote Ripple did allow me to learn my idea wouldn’t work, at zero cost.

Free and easy for quick for tight vnc. Light duty

Contected quickly to tight vnc servers. I just use it to check on my local computers to see task progress so it's good enough. Don't expect to navigate a desktop os easily obviously but this is good enough for some tasks and it's free.
