The new 1.31 release adds many new features:

o An option to automatically start EchoVNC at startup
o OpenSSL is automatically detected to enable the 128 -bit AES encryption option

EchoVNC is a secure remote -access solution based on VNC. EchoVNC comes with its own 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.
