Virtual Network Computing abbreviated as V.N.C. is a stupendous technology adverted for remote desktop sharing. It is envisioned as an open source research project in the late 1990's which was spawned at the Oracle Research Lab. It is an intelligible protocol, based on a graphic primitive. This efficacious application is mainly contemplated for triggering and controlling remote desktop with in a network. This protocol is intrinsically used for prospecting Graphical User Interface desktops on

Usually applications on a network can be accessed and executed by users as per the permissions ascribed by the administrator but impotent to access the desktop. The "VNC" is one such application that helps in catering the imperative facilities for inducing specific applications on a remote machine. The ingenuousness and candor makes this protocol competent, robust and puissant. The VNC protocol is utterly independent of operating system, windowing system, and applications dissonant from other remote display protocols such as the XWindow System and Citrix's ICA.The VNC server is used for sharing and dispensing its screen where as, the VNC client ganders and collaborates with the server.
