Chicken of the VNC

One doesn’t live by RDP alone. Chicken of the VNC implements a remote desktop control program that comes in commercial and free versions for just about every major operating system on earth. Chicken is VNC pure and simple -- it just plain works. Oh yeah, and it does support SSH tunneling, which you can configure as part of server preferences for each server [ok?]. My only gripe: Under most circumstances VNC wants you to be logged into the target computer and running VNC in user space. Meaning that if you log out, you’ve lost VNC. Follow these links to learn how to get VNC running at startup for both Windows and Linux.
