TightVNC is a VNC distribution with many new features, improvements, and bugfixes over VNC. It is optimized for faster operation on slow network links such as modem connections, provides more configuration options in the server, features automatic SSH tunneling in the Unix vncviewer, and more. The modified servers and viewers are fully compatible with the original VNC software.
VNC Reflector is a specialized VNC server which acts as a proxy between a real VNC server (a host) and a number of VNC clients. It was designed to work efficiently with large number of clients. It can switch between different hosts on the fly, preserving client connections. It supports reverse host-to-reflector connections, it can save host sessions on disk, and it also has other unique features.
