Screenshot from the first published version. Original caption:
Here you can see how Heavyiron connected from Russia to my (hidnplayr's) server in Belgium.

  • Can connect to VNC servers that are not secured, using an unencrypted connection.
  • Uses DNS to retrieve IP
  • Only Supports RAW encoding for now.
  • Screen resolution of the server may not be bigger then that of the client.
  • Hard coded for 8Bpp now. (Because the stack is so horribly slow)
  • Can send mouse events.
  • Beeps if requested by the server.

August 2015
