From The System Administrator Zone

VNC is client-server application that uses it own protocol. In a way it is similar to Windows Remote Desktop, but it can be run for each user and each user can have a different desktop. It is very efficient over high latency (long distance) links. The most typical usage of VNC is when the client (VNC viewer) is running on desktop and the server on a Unix system.
