From Wikipedia:Virtual Network Computing:

In computing, Virtual Network Computing (VNC) is a graphical desktop sharing system that uses the RFB protocol to remotely control another computer. It transmits the keyboard and mouse events from one computer to another, relaying the graphical screen updates back in the other direction, over a network.

To improve security of sessions VNC can be piped through SSH (Secure SHell).

There are a number of VNC servers and clients available on Arch including:

  • vinagre

To get a list of all VNC-related programs try:

# pacman -Ss vnc

In the AUR there is also tigervncAUR available, the successor of tightvnc.
