 Yes it does - you'll need the vnc server package on the end you want to
view/control ...

# Minimal xorg.conf for vnc on root display
Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Option "passwordfile" "/usr/local/etc/vnc/password"

Section "Module"
        Load "vnc"

Password file is created using vncpassword if I remember correctly.

I assume its either local intranet - or you've ssh tunneled port 5900 to
be visible on your client machine where you're running vncviewer  if
your doing this over the internet.
