Help Organizing RealVNC Connections

We just purchased a 2000-seat Enterprise license for RealVNC. It works great, but the one downside I see is that the Viewer doesn't allow you to save and organize connections to the PCs we want to control. It saves previous connections in the drop-down, but I wondered if there was a way to organize all PCs running VNC Server in a console or something so you wouldn't have to manually type the PC name every time. Thoughts?

Make a folder on the desktop, for each connection, save the profile as a .vnc file, give it a proper name. Link .vnc file extension to start your vnc viewer.

Personally I tend to go down the route of integrating with a helpdesk application, or other stuff like picking up sending machine from header of email etc. that already has a PC name in.

VNC files are just text files too so you could easily make a set of files in suitable directory structures by department / location / computername if wanted too.

What sort of thing are you after?

There is an Address Book included for RealVNC:
"C:\Program Files\RealVNC\VNC Viewer\vncaddrbook.exe"
Do you have this?  If not, run another setup and make sure that the option is ticked.

It allows you to store different connection settings for each of the named VNC Servers along with the (options > choose "encrypted) passwords for each, and you can set a master password for the address book.

You can export to and import from XML format for backup purposes.

The address book looks like the best solution with what's included with Real VNC. I like that you can also create folders so we can mimic Active Directory. Thanks!
