Introduction




VNC Connect is a remote access software that allows you to connect to and control your remote computers from anywhere in the world. You can use VNC Connect for various purposes, such as:


  • Working from home or on the go



  • Providing remote support or assistance



  • Managing IT infrastructure or networks



  • Teaching or learning online



  • Collaborating or sharing files with others



VNC Connect has many benefits, such as:


  • It is secure, reliable, and fast



  • It supports multiple platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, Raspberry Pi, iOS, and Android



  • It offers both direct connectivity (via IP address or hostname) and cloud connectivity (via RealVNC's cloud service)



  • It has flexible pricing plans for different needs and budgets



  • It has an intuitive user interface and easy-to-use features



To use VNC Connect, you need to install VNC Server on every remote computer you want to access, and VNC Viewer on every device you want to access from. You also need to license VNC Server with a valid license key. If your subscription is licensed per-user, you also need to license VNC Viewer.


VNC Connect offers different types of licensing options for different scenarios. You can choose between:


  • Cloud licensing: This is the default option for most users. It allows you to license VNC Connect via the cloud service using your RealVNC account credentials. You can enable both direct connectivity and cloud connectivity with this option. You can also manage your devices and users online via your RealVNC account.



  • Offline licensing: This is an alternative option for users who cannot or do not want to use the cloud service. It allows you to license VNC Connect using an offline license key or file. You can only enable direct connectivity with this option. You need to manage your devices and users offline via the VNC Server or VNC Viewer interface.



In this article, we will focus on offline licensing, specifically the Vnc 505 license key. This is a special type of offline license key that is compatible with VNC Connect version 5.0.5 or later. It is also known as a VNC 5.x license key or a VNC 5.x compatible license key.


How to Obtain a Vnc 505 License Key




To obtain a Vnc 505 license key, you need to have a valid subscription plan for VNC Connect. You can choose from three plans:


  • Home: This is a free plan for personal and non-commercial use only. It allows you to connect up to 5 remote computers and 3 users per account.



  • Professional: This is a paid plan for commercial and professional use. It allows you to connect up to 10 remote computers and unlimited users per account. It also offers more features and support than the Home plan.



  • Enterprise: This is the most advanced and expensive plan for large-scale and complex deployments. It allows you to connect unlimited remote computers and users per account. It also offers the most features and support than the other plans.

Once you have a valid subscription plan, you can find your offline license key on the Deployment page of your RealVNC account. To access this page, follow these steps:


  • Log in to your RealVNC account and click on the Deployment tab on the left sidebar.



  • Select Offline from the drop-down menu at the top of the page.



  • You will see your offline license key displayed on the page, along with other information such as your subscription type, expiry date, device limit, and user limit.



To download your offline license file or copy your offline license key, follow these steps:


  • If you want to download your offline license file, click on the Download button next to your offline license key. This will download a file named vnclicensewiz.exe, which contains your offline license key embedded in it.



  • If you want to copy your offline license key, click on the Copy button next to your offline license key. This will copy your offline license key to your clipboard.



How to Apply a Vnc 505 License Key




To apply a Vnc 505 license key, you need to have VNC Server installed on every remote computer you want to access, and VNC Viewer installed on every device you want to access from. You can download both VNC Server and VNC Viewer from https://www.realvnc.com/en/connect/download/vnc/.


You can apply your offline license key in three ways:

This is the easiest and most common way to apply your offline license key. To do this, follow these steps:


  • On the remote computer, run the vnclicensewiz.exe file that you downloaded from your RealVNC account. Alternatively, you can run the License Wizard from the Start menu or the VNC Server tray icon.



  • On the Welcome screen, click Next.



  • On the License screen, select Apply an offline license key and click Next.



  • On the Offline license key screen, paste your offline license key that you copied from your RealVNC account. Alternatively, you can browse to the location of your offline license file and select it. Click Next.

  • Via Group Policy: This is a Windows feature that allows you to manage settings for computers and users in a domain environment. You need to have a domain controller and Active Directory set up for this method.



  • Via Registry: This is a Windows feature that allows you to store settings for applications and system components. You need to have access to the registry of each remote computer for this method.



How to Apply Your Offline License Key via Group Policy




To apply your offline license key via Group Policy, follow these steps:


  • On the domain controller, download the ADM or ADMX template file for VNC Server from https://www.realvnc.com/en/connect/docs/policy.html.



  • Copy the template file to the appropriate folder on the domain controller. For ADM files, this is C:\Windows\INF. For ADMX files, this is C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions.



  • Open the Group Policy Management Console and create or edit a Group Policy Object that applies to the remote computers you want to license.



  • Expand Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > RealVNC > VNC Server 6.0.



  • Double-click on LicenseKey and enable it.



  • In the Options box, paste your offline license key that you copied from your RealVNC account. Click OK.



  • Close the Group Policy Management Console and wait for the policy to propagate to the remote computers.



You have successfully applied your offline license key to VNC Server via Group Policy. You can now connect to these remote computers using VNC Viewer.


How to Apply Your Offline License Key via Registry




To apply your offline license key via Registry, follow these steps:


  • On each remote computer, open the Registry Editor as an administrator.



  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\RealVNC\vncserver.



  • Right-click on vncserver and select New > String Value.



  • Name the new value LicenseKey and press Enter.



  • Double-click on LicenseKey and paste your offline license key that you copied from your RealVNC account in the Value data box. Click OK.



  • Close the Registry Editor and restart VNC Server on each remote computer.



You have successfully applied your offline license key to VNC Server via Registry. You can now connect to these remote computers using VNC Viewer.


How to Relicense VNC Connect at Renewal Time




To continue using VNC Connect, you need to renew your subscription plan before it expires. You can renew your subscription plan online via your RealVNC account or offline via a purchase order. You can also upgrade or downgrade your subscription plan at any time.

  • Automatically via the cloud service



  • Manually using your updated offline license key
