Virtual Network Computer or VNC software is used to remotely control and
view GUI screens across platforms of Windows, Mac, X-Windows, etc. This
will be a very interesting part of the OHS later on, especially coupled
with desktop video conferencing. I use it to control a couple of
servers at work.

I also can couple this with SSH or secure shell. It allows an encrypted
login across a network with terminal emulation. SSH can also be made to
forward arbitrary tcp/ip port connections between one machine and another.
