What is VNC IP and port?
VNC by default uses TCP port 5900+N, where N is the display number (usually :0 for a physical display). Several implementations also start a basic HTTP server on port 5800+N to provide a VNC viewer as a Java applet, allowing easy connection through any Java-enabled web-browser.
Is TightVNC safe?
How secure is TightVNC? Although TightVNC encrypts VNC passwords sent over the net, the rest of the traffic is sent as is, unencrypted (for password encryption, VNC uses a DES-encrypted challenge-response scheme, where the password is limited by 8 characters, and the effective DES key length is 56 bits).
Which is the default port number for TightVNC?
It’s the rules for TightVNC binaries only. The default ports are 5900 and 5800 for the server part, and the viewer can listen for reverse connections on port 5500 by default. However, that’s the defaults, and you have full power to use whatever port numbers you like. That’s why it might be a bad idea to enable the default ports only.
