VNC on Xubuntu

First off, I don't know if this belongs in Ubuntu Documentation email, but
here's your answer.

The way I do it is via "x11vnc" which displays the current display.  There
is also a package called "rfb" that works, but I find x11vnc to work
better.  As far as I know, there is no integraded into Xubuntu/Xfce yet.

x11vnc can also initiate reverse vnc connections if you need to help someone
who has linux, you can have them initiate the server in reverse vnc while
you listen with "vncviewer -listen"

Hope this helps,
