Overview of VNC
VNC, or Virtual Networked Computing, is a way of controlling a remote computer just as though you are sitting in front of it. In the Windows world it
is also known as remote desktop but it’s normally referred to as VNC in the Linux world. All that happens is that you connect using a VNC client to a
remote computer running the VNC server, then an image of the remote desktop is transmitted to your local computer and you can see and control the desktop
just as though you are there since all keyboard and mouse commands are sent from your client machine to the server.
