VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is basically a graphical desktop sharing system: The desktop of the server is shared and can be duplicated on the client. The keyboard and mouse events generated by the client can be tarnsfered to server, where they will have the same effect a local key stroke or mouse movement or click would have. This way, a computer can be monitored and controlled remotely. The underlying protocol is relatively simple. It is called the Remote Frame Buffer protocol (RFB).

History

VNC and the underlying protocol RFB have been developed in the Olivetti & Oracle Research Lab at Cambridge in the UK.
