RealVNC offers free client for Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi Foundation are working with RealVNC, a company which offers VNC (Virtual Network Computing), to offer the latest and most secure version of RealVNC to Raspberry Pi users free of charge.

Last year the Foundation bundled a VNC server with the Pi which allowed users to remotely access the device over a network. However, the server needed to be enabled manually through raspi-config, so setting up remote access was complex. The software was also rather limited.

With the new version, RealVNC are simplifying the process of accessing your Raspberry Pi from other devices. There is a new interface offering services for free for which you previously had to pay, including cloud access.
