The ButConnect remote access and support software tool is available free of charge. You always get the unrestricted version.
An installation is not required — after unpacking the downloaded package, ButConnect is ready for use.
When a new version is available, it's not necessary to download the full ButConnect package again and replace the files manually. Instead, you can use its (auto) update feature.
For an overview of new features, please take a look at the version history.
ButConnect is a portable and cross-platform software.
However, depending on your platform there are two different packages available: a full package (“bc”) with ButConnect and UltraVNC server & viewer for Windows and a minimal package with ButConnect only (“bcmin”) for all other systems.Full Package (including UltraVNC server and viewer, for Windows):
(Unzip and then run ButConnect.exe)
- or ...
(Execute and then run ButConnect.exe)
- If the message [ Windows protected your PC ] appears on your screen, you should request [ More info ] and then choose [ Run anyway ] if you want to ... connect anyway.
- (The UltraVNC server and viewer are licensed under the GPL. In ‘GNU GPL’ terms, our “Full Package” is an aggregate.)
In case your antivirus tool complains about the downloads, that's probably because we deliver
VNC executables together with ButConnect. If you're unsure, try to download the minimal version
of ButConnect that does not contain any other executables but still provides the full functionality
Since those additional executables are for Windows only, this is also the proper version for use with Linux, macOS, BSD, Solaris, Raspberry Pi and others (again, as long as Mono is installed).
It's then up to you to ensure that a VNC server and viewer or other tools to utilize the connection are in place.
(Extract and then run ButConnect.exe — respectively mono ButConnect.exe)
- or ...
(Untar/ungzip and then run mono ButConnect.exe)
