RealVNC offers worldwide connectivity for the Raspberry Pi for free

Andy Clark from RealVNC has just guest-blogged over at the Raspberry Pi website about the new version of VNC that is available now for the Raspberry Pi. And it’s available for free from the Raspbian repositories, meaning you can just type in the installation command and get it installed immediately. Called VNC Connect, it is a cloud-based service that allows your Pi to connect to it and then allow you to connect to your Pi, via the service website, from anywhere in the world. You can even play Minecraft Pi Edition remotely!

You can install it on your Pi by running the following commands

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install realvnc-vnc-server realvnc-vnc-viewer

Find out how to get set-up over on the RealVNC website and send then your feedback via Twitter or on the forums. You will need to register a new account on RealVNC to use the service.
