    Nice list Mike!

    There are several VNC apps, none just named VNC that I found...
    Which one were you referring to here?

    The only free one I see is the Mocha VNC Lite version. Is that the one?




    Also: It appears that Apple may have tightened control and is no longer allowing apps that search for wifi. (DB of wireless yeah, actual wifi scan, no). I think the 3 you mentioned like that have disappeared from the App store. or have been converted to search a DB of wireless networks.

    Just to advise I have sticky the thread. I believe it is a special thread that serves many IT professionals and support people across all platforms. I only wish I had this when I was providing support.
    Thank you MikesTooLz for your input

    TeamViewer Pro seems extreamly expensive at $99.99 and requires software be installed on the PC/Mac. Have you tried the pro version or just the free. Would the pro version really be worth it?
