VNC Client written in ActionScript 3 / Flash Player 8.5

Check this out. Darron Schall has put together a Flash Player 8.5 VNC (Virtual Network Computing) client with ActionScript 3. Basically, it is a remote desktop client that allows you to view and control other computers remotely.

Darron has a good post up explaining what new features in Flash Player 8.5 / ActionScript 3 made this possible.

You can find more info on the VNC client over at Darron’s weblog.

If you want to download and play with ActionScript 3 (via Flex Builder / mxmlc), you can grab it from Labs.

  3. I downloaded and installed the alpha yesterday and I couldn’t get past the “New Project� button. Flex just kept showing a progress bar finishing and then starting over again…

    A bit off the topic, but, will there be an update to Macromedia News plugin for Tb and Firefox? 1.5 is at RC1 now, and this plugin doesn’t work with it. I depend on it so much that I’ve reverted back to the last stable version.
