More Info
VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is, in essence, a remote display system which allows you to view a computing 'desktop' environment not only on the machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the Internet and from a wide variety of machine architectures.

There are five programs here:

vncviewer-4.1.2 - this is the VNC viewer, or client, program for X.

Xvnc-4.1.2 - this is the X VNC server - it is both a VNC server and an X server with a "virtual" framebuffer. You normally use the vncserver script to start Xvnc.

vncserver-4.1.2 - this is a wrapper script which makes starting an X VNC server (i.e. desktop) more convenient. It is written in Perl, so to use the script you need that.

vncpasswd-4.1.2 - this program allows you to change the password used to access your X VNC desktops. The vncserver script uses this program when you first start a VNC server.

vncconfig-4.1.2 - this program is used to configure and control a running instance of Xvnc.

admin note: /usr/sepp/var/realvnc-4.1.2-to/Xvnc must be setgid root.
