CrossLoop simplifies the process of securely working with friends located in different physical locations and across different network environments.

You can get up and running with CrossLoop in under 2 minutes. Simply download and install the application and it will automatically configure itself to your network environment.

PC Requirements

CrossLoop requires Windows 2000 or newer, including Vista; 128 MB RAM or greater; 2 MB hard drive space and a broadband internet connection.


When the CrossLoop installation begins, click “Run” in each window that appears.

Step 1.
Follow the simple instructions to install CrossLoop on your computer.

As part of these instructions you will be asked to accept the CrossLoop Terms of Service. In some cases, the downloaded text of these Terms of Service shows an earlier Version than the definitive version which is currently Version 1.3, last revised 1/11/07 and found here. The Terms of Service includes two separate licenses. The first license is for the proprietary CrossLoop shell program and the second license is a GPL for the TightVNC program. If you have any questions about your rights to the software of these two programs, please see our detailed description of how we use VNC.
