VNC and VNC viewer.

On the Ubuntu system you want to see (the "remote system"), use
System->Preferences->Remote desktop to allow others to see the desktop.
Definitely require a password and demand encryption.

On the Ubuntu system where you will be viewing *from* (the "local
system"), use Applications->Internet->Remote desktop viewer.

This is for GNOME; I presume similar functionality is available under
KDE. I am also fairly sure there is a Windows version of vncviewer.

Regards, K.

Yes it does :-)

Though it may not be in your menus or whatever.

The client /usr/bin/vinagre
The server /usr/bin/vino-preferences
Setup program /usr/lib/vino/vino-server

Read "man vinagre" for the client. it's for GNOME, but should work fine
on other X systems.

On the server ("remote system"), run vino-preferences first to set up
how vino should run, then run "vino-server".

On the client ("local system"), run vinagre.
