Patrick Stein releases JollysFastVNC 1.0 for Mac OS X
Offering secure SSH tunneling, SSL, and built-in SOCKS support, JollysFastVNC organizes the most useful features within a compact, straightforward user interface that's intuitive and quick to work with, says Stein. The application allows both multiple and reverse connections, including automated NatPNP/UPnP with WakeOnLan support and allows vnc:// and jfvnc:// url schemes for opening VNC connections from other programs. JollysFastVNC will see Bonjour hosts automatically as well as the ability to set hosts to auto-connect when visible.
JollysFastVNC offers fullscreen and multi-monitor support embraces the Mac log-in and keyboard character set along with full international keyboard support as well. It also offers remote cursor support and automatic pasteboard synchronization. JollysFastVNC serves as a complement to the developer's ScreenRecycler application.
Among JollysFastVNC's features is its SmartZoom functionality for viewing large remote desktops. When viewing any screen remotely which is larger than the users local screen, they can get part of the Desktop zoomed to a 1:1 ratio -- allowing them to see the entire screen at-a-glance, and preventing the need to scroll around.
JollyFastVNC requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher. It's Universal Binary so runs natively on both PowerPC and Intel Macs.
JollysFastVNC 1.0 is available as a single-user license for US$39. A 40% discount is available for ScreenRecycler users and a 30% early bird discount. A JFVNC and ScreenRecyceler Bundle is available for $49.
