I wonder if VNC Server/Client is free.
I need to install it in our Network so that I can remote to end users PC and fix their issues.

for the server App, does that mean I need windows 2003 or 2008 server, or it can be installed on Windows 7?
for the client , do I need to install it through GPO ?


Any help will be very much appreciated.

I use TightVNC.  Server gets loaded on the machines you want to control, and client on the machines your machine.

Second on tight VNC.  Generally, you would use GPO to push the msi and config so it would be installed on all domain computers.  The server is "serving" the video keyboard information, and the client is the one who is viewing the remote desktop.  As far as I know, it can be installed on all versions of Windows.

The limitations are more on how to deploy across network than the application itself.  My older scripts didn't work when Vista came along, and had to be updated, but other than that.

Take a look at http://www.spashtop.com

The time you spent tinkering with VNC even at minimum wage will by far offset the reasonable price of this superb product. and.... You can use free version for personal use!
