I found this to be informative.

I've not used vnc for about 10 years, since Windows 95.

It works differently than I remember.  In the old days, when I would
use vnc, I would see the programs that were running on the other
system, and I'd take control of the keyboard and mouse of the other
system. It was handy for practical jokes where we would make people's
PCs do crazy stuff.

In this vnc on Fedora, I see a blank desktop, rather than a running
session on the other PC.

What's the story there?
