VNC over WebSockets

What makes WebSockets especially compelling is that they allow you to extend the reach of enterprise protocols, like JMS, XMPP, AMQP, all the way to the browser. In this demonstration I show an example of implementing the VNC protocol, RFB, over WebSockets.

This 3 minute demo features a windows machine running a VNC server. The Windows desktop is accessed remotely from a vanilla Safari browser, simply leveraging the canvas tag and WebSockets.

First you see an environment Windows running as a virtual machine, then I show two physical machines connected, and last I walk through the building blocks used for the demo.

    Where can we browse the code?

    • Hi Nakul – this demo was built as a proof of concept; not with education purposes, so we were not planning to publish the source.
      If you have any questions or would like to chat about the demo and how we built it, I’ll be happy to get in touch with you. Just let me know.

    This is just what I’ve been looking for! Could you be so kind as to share the Kaazing server configuration? Many thanks in advance.
