A friend sent me a file to put under apache and now I have vnc access
over the web. But, its not secure. Can ssh be used with a browser

Yes, its a ubuntu server and both ubuntu and windows clients.

I just tried the vnc through a browser and its not working. I can see 
the desktop but cant get any updates over it.
