EchoVNC is a secure tunneling utility for VNC-based remote access. EchoVNC comes with a VNC Viewer, and is designed to work with any flavor of VNC Server that you already have installed (e.g., RealVNC, TightVNC, UltraVNC, etc.). With EchoVNC, a PC on your LAN can be securely remote-accessed without any adjustments to your firewall or router configuration. EchoVNC makes standard VNC installs "firewall friendly" with no port-forwarding requirements.
EchoVNC is built upon the open-source echoWare SDK developed as part of the Kaboodle project. With echoWare, any peer-to-peer or client-server Internet application can interconnect via a 3rd-party relay server, making all data traffic appear to be "outgoing" to any client-side firewalls or routers. Via the OpenSSL library, connections between the two applications can have their data content secured with a Diffie-Hellman key-exchange and 128-bit AES encryption. The relay-server supported by echoWare clients is a shareware application called "echoServer" -- together with EchoVNC, it provides an overall remote-access solution that is "firewall-friendly", highly secure, and extremely low cost.
