It's been a while since I've  had it installed, but IIRC,
http://server:5801 downloads a java app to the client browser that
functions as a vnc viewer.


The point here is that you can connect from any client that has a web browser that supports java applets. You don't need to have installed a vnc client first. You can find similar applets for telnet/ssh connections but you have to set them up under a web service yourself.
