"Vino" is a VNC server which shares a currently running desktop. It
should be installed by default, you can turn it on with:

System -> Preferences -> Remote Desktop

If it's not there, install the vino package (for example, by sudo
aptitude install vino)

There are a few VNC viewers available in Ubuntu. tsclient is a
graphical client which can use vnc-viewer (I *think* both are
installed by default). You can access it with Applications -> Internet
-> Terminal Server Client

If it's not there, install the tsclient and vnc-viewer packages (for
example, by sudo aptitude install tsclient vnc-viewer)
