QuestionVNC software Pin

Which one would you use?

I've used in the past Real VNC but nowadays they only offer a subscription service and I don't want to go that way for a software like this.

There's ultravnc[^], tightvnc[^] and tigervnc[^]...

All of them are free, but... Any of you has decided to go for one or another for some reason?

I use VNC to help other people remotely (using a VPN) and to connect to PC's in the same network that my computer is...

Being multi platform is not a big deal for me, but my main provider seems to have embraced linux for some products so maybe it would be a good idea...

Being able to send files is a good thing too.

Storing the session and credentials into a file to make it easy to launch the connection would be super too.

In terms of safety... well if there's no encryption mechanisms it would also not be a big deal... given I use it only in LAN or through a VPN...

Do you have any suggestion? have you worked with any of those? or there is another software out there that you would recommend?

As always, thank you very much!
