Virtual Network Computing (VNC) is a graphical desktop sharing system that uses the RFB protocol to remotely control another computer. It transmits the keyboard and mouse events from one computer to another, relaying the graphical screen updates back in the other direction, over a network.

VNC is platform-independent – a VNC viewer on one operating system may connect to a VNC server on the same or any other operating system. There are clients and servers for many GUI-based operating systems and for Java. Multiple clients may connect to a VNC server at the same time. Popular uses for this technology include remote technical support and accessing files on one's work computer from one's home computer, or vice versa.

IBM has a VNC for the iSeries that you can install if you have PASE. You can download VNC for the iSeries free from IBM's iSeries Tools for Developers Web page. Although VNC is free for the iSeries, it requires the Portable Application Solutions Environment (PASE) and Perl, which is part of the iSeries Tools for Developers PRPQ. See the article, "Native Graphics, VNC, and Perl," Midrange Guru, OS/400 Edition, at for more information about PASE, Perl, and the iSeries Tools for Developers.
