Increase VNC Speed (tightvnc)

  • If you select the "Low-bandwidth connection" option under "Connection profile" a lot of the default options will be changed. You will notice a drastic increase in performance from that allowance.
  • If you want to tweak the connection further, click the "Options" button to see what is under the hood. Choose the "Tight" encoding option to use TightVNC's compression. Select "Use 8-bit color" to reduce the number of colors and therefore increase speed. Below that, slide the compression bar down to its fastest point to make major changes on performance. Keep in mind that this will also affect the image quality.

  1. Thank you for this post! It's amazing how in 2014, we are still using TightVNC, but some companies still utilize this tool. I appreciate this information, as there was a considerable lag in performance working remote. Thanks again.
