Suppose if you have computers in LAN network. you want to control system with IP Address 192.168.1.6 from a system with IP Address 192.168.1.7. Now I will explain how to control 192.168.1.6 from 192.168.1.7 using UltraVNC.

First install UltraVNC in both systems. During installation select full installation of UltraVNC. Full installation installs UltraVNC Server and UltraVNC Viewer. So install UltraVNC Server and UltraVNC Viewer in both of the systems.

After completing installation, now run UltraVNC as Server from system with IP Address 192.168.1.6. You will observe on the screen as shown below.





Now type a VNC Password as you like then click Apply then click O.K. Now UltraVNC Server runs on 192.168.1.6

Now if you want to control 192.168.1.6 from another sytem in the LAN network with IP Address 192.168.1.7 then run UltraVNC as Viewer from 192.168.1.7. You will observe on the screen as shown below.




Now in VNC Server box type 192.168.1.6 then click Connect. Now it prompts you to type the VNC Password. So type the VNC Password that you already set to the VNC Server then click Logon. Now VNC Viewer starts on 192.168.1.7 as shown below.



So the desktop of 192.168.1.6 now appears on 192.168.1.7 as shown above. So now you can control 192.168.1.6 as you like from 192.168.1.7.
