7.6. Virtual Network Computers

Through the Virtual Network Computer (VNC) system, you can log into a remote Mac OS X machine from another computer, launch an application on the remote Mac OS X machine, and have the application display on your local machine. The local machine can be running the X Window System, Microsoft Windows, or another platform supported by VNC.

VNC consists of two components: a VNC server (which must be installed on the remote machine) and a VNC viewer (which is used on the local machine to view and control applications running on the remote machine). The VNC connection is made through a TCP/IP connection.
